TCDD DE18100 are a type of diesel-electric locomotive built for operations on Turkish State Railways by Matériel de Traction Electrique. Based on the same platform and order as the DE24000, it was a light-axle version of the locomotive, very similar to the DE18000, though with a different wheel arrangement. The units were mostly used around Izmir. They previously pulled Denizli-İzmir regional trains. Now they are used in shunting operations along with TCDD DE24000.
