Indian locomotive class NDM-1

Indian locomotive class NDM-1

NDM-1 is a class of narrow gauge diesel locomotives built for Indian State Railways in 1956. They are B-B diesel hydraulic locomotives.

The only difference between the NDM-1 class and the ZDM-1 is the gauge. NDM-1s are 2ft gauge, the ZDM-1s are 2ft 6inch gauge. Conversion between gauges (and thus classes) is possible and has been carried out on three locomotives.

Each locomotive consists of three sections, two identical four-wheeled power units with a cab suspended between the two. They are articulated in the same way as the Swiss electric locomotives (a design also used in India) known as a crocodile.
