2012-07-25: Container Train arrives at Bellville

10:47 - A container train from the north is approaching Bellville Depot.

E18-677 (Orange) and (E18-316) are heading the train

Before the white tank containers are a number of smaller containers - loaded in pairs per waggon.

The train has 50 waggons in tow.

These containers following the tanks are of a greater height and each occupies a full wagon length.

Pedestrians crossing the rails are a big problem in this area - currently contractors are erecting new fences - it remains to be seen how effective these measures will be.

The train dissappears into cutting in order to pass below the metro lines going from Bellville to the Strand.
