South African Railways Plate - Replica

Between 1959 and 1961 the South African Railways placed one hundred and thirty-five Class 5E1, Series 1 electric locomotives with a Bo-Bo wheel arrangement in service

The first series of the Class 5E1 3 kV DC electric locomotive was designed and built for the South African Railways (SAR) by Metropolitan-Vickers (Metrovick) at its Bowesfield Works, with the electrical equipment supplied by Associated Electrical Industries (AEI). It was virtually identical in outward appearance to the forerunner Class 5E, but with more powerful traction motors and with a new bogie design that gave a smoother ride

The South African Class 5E1 was produced in five series, the Metrovick built Series 1 and the Union Carriage & Wagon (UCW) built Series 2 to 5. Between 1959 and 1969 altogether six hundred and ninety of them were built, one hundred and thirty-five Series 1, one hundred and thirty Series 2, one hundred Series 3, one hundred Series 4 and two hundred and twenty-five Series 5.
