The CBH Class were 25 diesel locomotives built by MotivePower in Boise, Idaho, in 2012-14 for CBH Group, a grain co-operative in Western Australia. The first fourteen built had 2,680HP engines and the rest had a more powerful 3,300HP engine. Twenty of the class run on narrow-gauge (3ft 6in) track; the remaining five run on standard gauge (4ft 8½in).

The CBH class is a class of diesel-electric freight locomotives designed and built by MotivePower, Inc. in Boise, Idaho, USA, for CBH Group, a grain growers' co-operative based in Perth, Western Australia. The 22 members of the CBH class are divided into three sub-classes, based on differences in power output, traction motors and rail gauge. The first two CBH class units entered service in June 2012, and the class was officially launched at a ceremony at the CBH Metro Grain Centre in Forrestfield, Western Australia on 24 August 2012. The CBH class was ordered for use in hauling grain trains on the open access rail network managed by Brookfield Rail in the south of Western Australia. The grain trains, operated for CBH by Watco WA Rail under a long term contract, link various CBH grain collection points in the wheatbelt with CBH terminal and port facilities in Albany, Geraldton and Kwinana.
