The need for the TR Class was borne out of the Tasmanian state Government's re-acquisition of TasRail. After decades of under-investment from AN, ATN and Pacific National, the loco fleet was old and tired, and comprised of many different classes with very little standardisation across the board. 

The TR Class is an entirely new class of locomotive for Australia, having been built overseas in Georgia, USA. The design has been carefully crafted to suit Tasmania's particular requirements in axle load, power and loading gauge. The contract was signed in mid December 2011 with delivery slated for 2013.

The first two class members were officially unveiled at TasRail's East Tamar Junction workshops on December 3rd 2013.
