SAR Class 5E E590 (Series 3)
Title:  SAR Class 5E E590 (Series 3)
Description:  In 1958 and 1959 the South African Railways placed fifty-five Class 5E, Series 3 electric locomotives with a Bo-Bo wheel arrangement in service, numbered in the range from E536 to E590. The number range of the Series 3 locomotives do not follow directly on that of the Series 2 since the Class 5E1, Series 1 and the Class ES locomotives were allocated most of the numbers in between. The locomotives were ordered from English Electric, who subcontracted their building to Vulcan Foundry.
