In the early 1960s the TGR commenced building the Y class locomotives at their Inveresk Workshops. These were based upon the SAR 800 class and Midland Railway F class, both of these class of locomotives were built English Electric at their Rocklea plant in Queensland.
Whilst the class only numbered 8 units in total, it took from 1961 up until 1971 to deliver the entire class. They retained the classic English Electric look of the 800 hp diesel model.
Found in use on both passenger and freight trains across the state most remained in traffic until the very late 1980s. Y7 was rebuilt in 2001 as a Driving van for cement trains from Railton to Devonport. Y1 and Y5 were renumbered to 2150 and 2151 respectively and remained with Tasrail until 2016.
