New locomotive: 2000 class railcar

The "2000" class railcars are self-propelled diesel railcars which are used by TransAdelaide on the Adelaide metropolitan rail network. They were built by Commonwealth Engineering and entered service in 1980. They acquired the nickname "Jumbos" due to the raised driving cab, similar to that of the Boeing 747 "Jumbo Jet". This raised cab was designed so that two passengers could sit at the front or rear window, or in a 3 car set look into the leading trailer. There are 29 currently in operation.

The real specifications for this locomotives are (taken from wikipedia):
  • Units built: 12 (2000, engines) / 18 (2100, trailers)
  • Total unit length: N/A
  • Weight: 68 t (2000) / 42 t (2100)
  • Top speed: 140 km/h (limited to 90 km/h in service)
  • Power output: 746 kW / engine
