Series 2043 is a diesel locomotive series on Hrvatske željeznice.

With the electrification of magistral railway lines the need has arisen that diesel locomotives are put into service on less frequent lines. Usually less axle pressure is allowed on branch and less frequent lines.

A locomotive, which was light and powerful enough was needed.

Therefore, the series series 2061 was striped down and series 2043 was created.

Two of the six engines were taken out, so only four are still left. With this the most weight was lost. Now, the adhesion moment is distributed differently.

In the end effect, this series behaves very much like series 2061.
