Shosholoza Meyl - TOA PA system for coaches
Shosholoza Meyl promises that each of their passengers will be treated to "A Pleasant Experience" throughout their journey.
Anyone familiar with the history of migrant workers in South Africa will instinctively know the Shosholoza is the name of a popular traditional Africa song favoured particularly by hard working men whose work it was to lay railway lines.
Meaning "push forward, endeavor or strive", it evokes a sense of pride. Today the song has become a favoured rallying cry of our sportsmen and women and their supporters.
Altogether it reflects a sense of joy and unity.
Imeyili is an old colloquial term used to describe a long distance train. By replacing Rail with Meyl a warm sense of history is restored.

For the train's public address requirements Transnet Freight Rail (Infra Telecoms) chose TOA's popular and ultra-reliable A-1724 full-range mixer amplifier and approximately 50 attractive PC-646R ceiling speakers with aluminium punch-grill and chrome-finish installation screws for each of the coaches.
TOA's PM-660U paging microphone and 13 AT-303P volume attenuators were added to complete the system. TOA received regular orders for these systems whilst the project was rolled out.
