Two Transnet Freight Rail trains, ferrying tonnes of coal, collided in the Elubana region, near eNseleni, in northern KwaZulu-Natal yesterday morning (Sunday at 6am). One train rear-ended the other, which is believed to have been stationary due to a power outage.
Sources say the possibility of sabotage cannot be ruled out. This after TFR recently announced that it plans to increase the number of trains on the North Corridor. Thousands of trucks have been ferrying coal along the N2 highway into the port of Richards Bay. “It’s a cash cow.”
