Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) is a multiple unit train consisting of self-propelled carriages powered by on-board diesel engines. A DMU requires no separate locomotive, as the diesel engines are incorporated into one or more of the carriages. They may also be referred to as a railcar or railmotor, depending on country.
