On the Vryheid Oos section of the Coal Line.

The 'old' line, visible to the upper left, has almost topped out.

We are still climbing the gentle new gradient and the top of our hill is visible out in the distance.

A portal design for the catenary has been used here as this section's trolley and messenger are terminating on the next pole.
