New South Wales 48 Class Locomotive

The 48 Class are a class of diesel locomotives built by A. E. Goodwin, Granville for the New South Wales Government Railways between September 1959 and October 1970. Once the most ubiquitous locomotive in New South Wales (and Australia), they are based on Alco frames and prime movers, using General Electric (later AEI) electrical equipment. The South Australian Railways 830 and Silverton Rail 48s classes are of a very similar design.
