The Victorian Railways H Class diesel locomotive are a small shunter that entered service from 1967 for use at the Melbourne Hump Yard, Australia. Built by Clyde Engineering (now EDI Rail), the class were visually similar to the T class locomotive, the H class being fitted additional equipment for their duties, including extra weight for traction, "manual power control" to allow low speed operation, and an accurate low speed speedometer.
The H class were delivered as T class T413 to T417, but were reclassified and renumbered before entering service. The class rarely left Melbourne due to their excessive weight, until being approved to operate on the same lines as the N class in January 1987. After the privatization of V/Line Freight the H class were all sold to Freight Victoria. All H class locomotives are now in service with Pacific National
