SAR Class 8E E8096  Contributor's Pick!       
Between 1983 and 1985 the South African Railways placed one hundred Class 8E centre-cab electric shunting locomotives in service, numbered in the range from E8001 to E8100. Designed by a consortium consisting of Brown Boveri of Switzerland and Siemens of Germany, it was built by Union Carriage and Wagon in Nigel, who also fabricated the mechanical components. Another seven of these locomotives were built for the mining industry.
