This paper descriptionbes the civil engineering improvements undertaken by the South African Railways during the period 1963-1966, prior to the electrification of the Witbank-Komatipoort section of the Eastern Transvaal Main Line. The mineral and agricultural wealth of the area served by the Eastern Transvaal System of railways and the growth of rail traffic necessitating the improvements to the carrying capacity of the line are descriptionbed. Some reference to the Selati line is included as the phenomenal growth of the traffic emanating from this line is the prime reason for the electrification of the Eastern Main Line.
