New Zealand DSG class locomotive
|New Zealand DSG class|
DSG 3114 in Dunedin, 2009.
The New Zealand DSG class is a type of diesel-electric shunting locomotive used in New Zealand. The class shares a central cab design with the smaller DSC class shunting locomotive, and is twin-engined. Meanwhile, the very similarly designed, single-engined DSJ class, has a cab that is offset from the centre.
The locomotives have seen widespread use throughout New Zealand, particularly in larger yards and for port traffic. They also see service on sections of mainline, performing regional shunt duties in a number of areas.
All DSG class locomotives are in the KiwiRail Mark 2 colour scheme (Vertical separations of main colours on car body).
