82 Class

82 Class

The 82 Class was a 3 car EMU operating for KTM Komuter built by Union Carriage & Wagon in South Africa.

During the “Komuter Krisis” in 2012, some sets of 82 Class without its own motive power formed special Hybrid Trains for passenger service. This consisted of a locomotive to haul the train and a generator set to provide electrical power to the train. Some sets were revived from hybrid trains again for a short while, operating under their own motive power again, before they ceased operations completely.

All 82 Class EMUs are retired from service.
