E class

The E class was VR's first non steam and first eletric locomotives. They were built for suburban goods service and to utilise the eletric system. The first two E class locomotives were built with a steeple cab design and the latter were built with a box cab design. The First two were scrapped early as they did not have a suitable underframe structure to be autocoupled.
