Arachnophobia is not for the faint hearted!
91 010 is now being cleaned having been moved to the loco depot at Sandstone and it appears it has half the spider population of Port Elizabeth inside it. Gert Jubileus and his team are now cleaning the loco in time for its inspection by the Sandstone diesel fitter next week. Lukas Nel reports that the passenger steam heating vans from Port Elizabeth which were serviced at Bloemfontein often contained hordes of spiders of a particularly aggressive nature. Take care Gert and team!
