About Locomotives 2020

Rail transport was introduced in Croatia in 1860. For the next one hundred years, trains were pulled exclusively by steam locomotives. However, over time they became uneconomical in comparison with electric and diesel engines, which were constructed during the first half of the 20th century. Therefore, in the mid-1950s, the Community of Yugoslav Railways also started modernising its vehicle fleet, which led to the introduction of the first diesel-electric locomotives in Croatia, namely the JŽ 661 locomotive series, later marked as the HŽ 2061 series and the JŽ 642 locomotive series, later marked as the HŽ 2041 series.
