In July 1977, the Moyse factory delivered the first shunting locomotive Y 8001 (in France named “Locotracteur”) which was designed for shunting operations at stations, marshalling yards, construction sites and repair workshops of the SNCF. Since they were stronger and longer than their predecessors, the Y 8000 locomotives were also able to replace locomotives which hauled light freight trains.

The model can only be operated to a limited extent with analogue driving devices.
