The GT26CW-2 is a diesel-electric locomotive modified type of GT26CW created by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors for export in Iran, Israel, Morocco, Pakistan, Peru, South Korea, Turkey and Yugoslavia. Various licencees have constructed this model.

Peru[edit]

The Empresa Nacional de Ferrocarriles del Peru (Enafer) operates seven GT26CW-2s for the mining region. All were constructed by General Motors Diesel Division of London, Ontario.

South Korea[edit]

From 1971 to 1997, the Korean National Railroad received GT26CW-2s from Electro-Motive Division and Hyundai Rolling Stock Co. (present:Hyundai Rotem) These locomotives are used for freight trains and express passenger trains on all of the Korail sectors.

Very little is known about their construction. Several of these locomotives were sold to Iran

Turkey[edit]

Main article: TCDD DE33000

The Turkish State Railways received 89 units built by Tülomsaş between 2003-2009. The units are numbered TCDD DE33000. They have the latest innovations of the GT26 series, mainly noticed by a spacier cab view.

Yugoslavia[edit]

The Yugoslav Railways (Jugoslavenske Željeznice) received 14 GM GT26CW-2s from EMD. Mainly used for freight and passenger trains between Knin and Split (Dalmatinska pruga) in Croatia. All locomotives went to service on Hrvatske Željeznice after the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991. They are now classified as HŽ series 2063. In the meanwhile, some were sold to NREC.
