The PB Class are GenSet (generator set) locomotives, each having two separate Cummins engines. Each of the engines can be shut down separately if required, improving efficiency and reducing emissions. They were built in the United States by the National Railway Equipment Company for service with BlueScope Steel at Port Kembla in New South Wales.
