The Fenniarail Class Dr18 locomotive is a diesel-electric locomotive used by Fenniarail Oy in freight transport in Finland.

The locomotive is a Finnish variant of the CZ LOKO Class 774.7, which in turn is a modernised version of older Czech locomotives (T669). They have been converted from standard to broad gauge, which was possible since the model was prepared for usage in the Soviet Union.
