SMH Rail Sdn Bhd made two locomotives as a demonstration unit for KTMB to evaluate if they would purchase this locomotives. The locomotive’s design is obviously heavily inspired by Blue Tiger locomotives and if I’m not mistaken the chassis has been refurbished from old 24 class locomotives. I don’t have much technical details about this locomotives but unfortunately KTMB has turned down the locomotives. G1001 is currently at SMH Rail’s 26 and 29 class maintenance depot at Klang and it’s being used a shunter. I was told by a loco driver who did the evaluation that it had enough power and the cab was comfortable.
- New loco?
- Bunch of railway fans…..
