Arguably the first of the streamliners, and Australian built mainline locomotives. The SAR 900 class diesel-electric locomotive were designed and built in-house by the South Australia Railways, they used English Electric V16 engines. English Electric also supplied the generators and traction motors.

The 10 units were delivered between 1951 and 1953, all were out-of-service by mid 1985.
