Suburban Trains Adelaide Australia

I took this photo at the railway crossing on South road and Euston terrace Croydon in the city of Adelaide in the state of South Australia. They are two diesel passenger trains hooked together. The line is the Port Adelaide passenger service from the city centre to the suburbs of Port Adelaide.
I sorry I have no details on what type of trains maybe some one out there can let us know.

Hi to all. These diesel powered railcars were part of the South Australian govt suburban Metro fleet. 2000 class power cars & 2100 class trailer cars. Constructed by Comeng in the late 1970's & locally called Jumbo's due to the turret type drivers compartment (similar to a Jumbo jet cockpit) as seen in your 1st & 4th photo. The Sth. Aust. govt has in the last 3-4 yrs moved to Electric powered metro railcars & these Jumbo's now don't meet the govt plan. Sadly they (state govt) recently decided to scrap most of the fleet as recently as 3 months ago. 2 sets have been kept for preservation. Thanks for allowing me to send this post
