Excerpt: Beginning in 2000 Spoornet embarked on a program to rebuild Class 6E1, Series 6 to Series 11 locomotives to Class 18E, Series 1 locomotives. Most of the Class 6E1s that had previously been reclassified or modified to Class 16E or Class 17E were rebuilt to Class 18E as well. The South African Class 6E1 3 kV DC electric locomotive was built for the South African Railways (SAR) by Union Carriage and Wagon (UCW) in Nigel, Transvaal, with the electrical equipment supplied by the General Electric Company (GEC). UCW did not allocate builder's numbers to the locomotives it built for the SAR. While the usual practice by most other locomotive builders was to allocate builder's numbers or works numbers to record the locomotives built by them, UCW simply used the SAR running numbers for their record keeping. The rebuilding to Class 18E, Series 1 was done by Transwerk, later renamed Transnet Rail Engineering (TRE), at its Koedoespoort shops in Pretoria, Gauteng. Rebuilding to Series 1 locomotives ceased in 2009 with 446 units rebuilt, the last Series 1 locomotive being number 18-525. The Class 6E1 that it was rebuilt from, is a dual cab locomotive and has a roof access ladder on one side only, just to the right of the cab access door. The roof access ladder end is marked as the number 2 end. A passage along the centre of the locomotive connects the cabs. The rebuilt Class 18E locomotive, on the other hand, is a single cab unit since the number 1 end cab was stripped of all controls during the rebuilding, to have additional equipment and a toilet installed to accommodate female crew. The rebuilding includes the installation of Alsthom micro-processor control technology. New equipment in the totally refurbished Class 18E locomotive include the following: The most obvious visual feature to distinguish the Class 18E from the Class 6E1 is the filled in driver's windows at the rear end where the toilet is installed. On the first rebuilds, as observed up to number 18-012, the small dri
