The 80 class is a class of mainline diesel locomotive introduced from 1978 in the state of New South Wales. They were the first class to be built "as a whole" by Commonwealth Engineering in Granville, New South Wales, based on an Alco design. Altogether 50 units were built. These units were a follow on for the 442 class units, which were mostly supplied by A. E. Goodwin, but when the company shut down, Commonwealth Engineering completed the final six.

These locomotives were a development of the 442 class. They were the first locomotives in Australia to feature factory-fitted cab air-conditioning and fibreglass body panels. They are powered by an Alco 251CE V12 four-stroke turbocharged engine rated as 1604/1492 kW, driving a Mitsubishi 2-B2-288P-01 alternator powering six Mitsubishi MB-451 BVR traction motors.

They were initially found in the Western region, from Parkes to Broken Hill. They worked in other regions later on.

Currently, Pacific National have 22, while 24 have been bought by Silverton Rail from Pacific National, and 4 locomotives have been scrapped. Both operators have most of the class in storage, however Pacific National are currently refurbishing a number of their 80 class fleet, which includes the re-activation of a few of stored 80 class locomotives.
