New locomotive: 620 & 720 Railcar

The 620 & 720 class railcars are a Diesel Multiple Unit train used in the latter stages of their life by CityRail, primarily on its Hunter Valley line. The 620/720 railcars were built by New South Wales Government Railways (NSWGR) from 1961 to 1968.
The Department of Railways' Water Supply Workshops at Chullora gained experience in lightweight bodywork whilst building aircraft during World War 2. Consequently, these and all other in-house DMUs featured bodywork of largely aluminium composition.
All sets were withdrawn in 2007, with the last service running on October 29 from Newcastle to Paterson and return.

The real specifications for this locomotives are (taken from wikipedia):
  • Units built: 15 two-car units
  • Total unit length: N/A
  • Weight: N/A
  • Top speed: 115 km/h (> 71 mph)
  • Power output: 441 kW (2 x 300 hp)
