The 48 Class diesel-electric locomotives were built by A E Goodwin (Auburn) for the New South Wales Government Railways between 1959 and 1970. Once the most ubiquitous locomotive in New South Wales, Australia, they are based on Alco frames and prime movers using General Electric electrical equipment.

The 48 Class were ordered to commence the conversion of branch lines to diesel traction with the first entering service in September 1959. Further orders saw 165 in service by October 1970. There were four versions.
