Cover 39-005 nr Capital Park I was lucky to get this shot! I was a passenger in train when this set of Class 39 passed us at Capital Park.

Welcome In my possession I only had the above shot of 39-005 when Rudy Venter kindly sent in the following photographs of Class 29-217. These together with the info we received from Andre Kritzinger and Lourens Sturgeon is published in the interest of the Railway Fraternity, so that other “train spotters� and model-builders can share in this joy!

Class 39- 217 Rudi Venter
