Series 2042 is a diesel locomotive series on Croatian Railways (Croatian: hrvatske željeznice, HŽ).

This series is not substantively different from the series 2041, except that they have a stronger engine. With the upgrade in motor, this locomotives changed the traction behavior. These are four-axle locomotives with every axle separately powered. This series is built for hauling of lighter freight trains and for heavy maneuvering.
