KTM YDM 4 Locomotive is a fleet of diesel locomotives that is leased to KTMB from Indian Railways. It is manufactured by Diesel Locomotive Works, Varanasi, India and 28 units were brought to Malaysia in the late 1990s.

Then, five additional units were brought into Malaysia in 2009, refurbished by Southern Railway Workshop, Tiruchirappalli, India (source: Wikipedia Bahasa Melayu). YDM 4 originally is used by Indian Railways from 1961 until 1993.

YDM 4 is intended to be the temporary stopgap while waiting for the new locomotives. Eventually, these locomotives will be returned back to India. Therefore, the fleet numbers for YDM 4 are retained.
