Remarks & Notes 
Darwin Award candidates on the Kaalfontein to Tembisa run. Trainsurfing has become an often fatal fad around Johannesburg and the ultimate macho thing is to ride on the roof, standing upright while dodging catenary poles and keeping clear of the 3,000 volt cable while the train speeds along at between 80 and 100 km/h. Note the "surfer" in dark green between the second and third last coaches, whose feet are mere inches from the ballast, even with his knees pulled up. (Also see picture numbers 302027 and 302029.)
