Y Class Bo-Bo diesel electric

I originally had these down as diesel hydraulic, I don't know why, perhaps I just jumped to that conclusion. Derek Morton wrote to put me right: "the Y class are disel electric and use refurbished Tait power car bogies". Railpage Y class states:

The Y class could be found on branch lines all around Victoria, as well as being used for shunting at many locations. Some of the class can be found as pilots at Dynon or Newport, or shunting carriages at Spencer Street. A Y class has been used by APM at Maryvale and Traralgon.

An interesting feature about this class is that they used GE traction motors recycled from early 'Dogbox' electric suburban rollingstock. As well, some of the first batch had their entire bogies recycled from the 'Doggies'. Most now see use as shunters and pilots.
