The B class was the first mainline diesel-electric locomotives in Victoria, Australia. The design was based on the successful General Motors EMD F-unit locomotives with the distinctive bulldog nose. They are a double ended streamliner locomotive, in contrast to North American practice. Ordered and operated by the Victorian Railways, they started dieselisation of the system and saw use on both passenger and freight services with many remaining in service today, both in preserved and revenue service. Some were rebuilt as the V/Line A class, while others have been scrapped.
