The A2 class was an express passenger locomotive that ran on Victorian Railways from 1907 to 1963. A highly successful design entirely the work of Victorian Railways' own design office, its long service life was repeatedly extended as economic depression and war delayed the introduction of more modern and powerful replacement locomotives.

We identify rebuilt and renumbered locomotives from this class as well as other classes with similar mechanical configurations and present those classes below.
