The Austrian Federal Railways procured 400 hp diesel locomotives of the class 2062 from 1958 onwards to replace the costly and personnel-intensive steam locomotives that rendered shunting services. The Jenbacher Werke in Tyrol built 65 units of this two-axle small diesel locomotive until 1966.
The locomotive was used throughout Austria for shunting and construction train services, with its eye-catching cast-iron front shields serving as ballast weights. You could find them in front of passenger trains with one or two wagons on the Lower Austrian branch lines. The last locomotives were withdrawn from regular service in 2003. However, some are still in operation today as works and construction locomotives with the class designation X262.
