|The Afro 4000 locomotives are already controversial because they exceed the maximum height limit of the South African loading gauge by nearly seven inches. At least one of them have already sustained damage when its roof came into contact with the 3kV catenary at an underpass near Koup siding in the Karoo. While it's height probably had nothing to do with this derailment, the Afro 4000's short track record will definitely not benefit from this accident.
