Croatian Railways class 7112 railbuses are former Swedish class Y1 trains. The class Y1 was an Italian design by Fiat, which got a better chassis designed by the Swedes. They were lousy machines as long as they had their original Fiat engines, but the Swedes soon installed new Volvo truck engines into them, creating thus reliable and good trains. Since 1996 Swedish SJ has been sending altogether 35 used Y1 railbuses not only to Croatia, but also other ex-Yugoslavian countries. Croatian railways uses them on less important side lines. Only a handful of Y1s are left in Sweden nowadays.
