The HŽ Series 2062 is a class of diesel-electric locomotives belonging to Croatian Railways (Croatian: hrvatske željeznice, HŽ). They are examples of the EMD G26 locomotive series.

Prior to the breakup of Yugoslavia, when in use with these locos were classified as JŽ 664-0. Of the original 64 JŽ locomotives, 56 found their way to HŽ, with the remainder in use with ŽS.[2]

HŽ have modernised 20 class 2062s, reclassifying them as 2062-1s. The work was carried out by Gredelj & Turner.

The main usage for 2062s is in Lika, Dalmatia, Istria with a few in Slavonia. The -1 subclass is used only on Lika-Dalmatia services.
