In the mid-1950s, SJ purchased three light shunter models called Z61 (Kockums), Z62 (Hägglunds & söner) and Z63 (Nohab). In the late 1970s, SJ decided to give these three models the same designation, Z67, and to modernise all 31 of these with the same engine, diesel-hydraulic transmission and power, even if the actual appearance differed.

During its time with SJ, the locomotive was primarily used in northern Sweden, and many ended up with the national rail administration, Banverket. Z62 375 was rebuilt by Gmiender in 1978 and renamed Z67 630. The light shunter is used for our operations in Ängelholm, and the colour and marking it had in the 1980s has been restored.


Z67 630 is a designation (class) which means:

  • Z means locomotive (approx. 300 hp)
  • 67 is the model number within the Z family
  • 630 is the locomotive's individual number
