(76-centimetarske) pruge bivse Jugoslavije
The JZ Class 802 DMU's in Portugal by Joao Braga and in Peru.
After the closure of the 76cm lines in Yugoslavia, ten of the 4 car Class 802 units were sold for further use in Portugal. They were regauged to metre gauge and some subsequently received Volvo engines in place of the original Fiat ones. The trains worked on several lines: Porto-Póvoa; The Corgo line; The Tua line and the Vouga Line. The trains were reformed into 3 car sets except on the Corgo line where only two cars were used. They remained in use until 2001. After withdrawal the chassis of some units were used to form single unit railcars of the 9500 class, known as LRV 2000. Of the remaining units, five were exported - three went to Peru and two to Mozambique railways.
