Prototype History:
The ČSD class 753 (nicknamed Brejlovec or Diving Googles) is a 1985 hp (1460kW) four-axle BóBó diesel-electric locomotive, initially designated as class T 478.3, built by ČKD Prague workshops for the Czechoslovak State Railways ČSD, between 1968 and 1977. A total of 408 units were built; it became one of the largest class of locomotives built in the country.
More than 150 locomotives of class 753 have been modified in the 1990s to class 750 by the introduction of an electric heating alternator; the output power was increased from 1325 kW to 1460kW, with equal traction power. Several dozens of these upgraded locomotives are still in operation in freight transport at ČD Cargo and other operators.
The ČSD class 754, initially designated as class T 478.4, is an improved version of class T 478.3, designed especially for passenger and express transport. A total of 86 units were built between 1975 and 1980. The first two prototypes produced in 1975 were later re-labeled 750 series (Inv. 409 and 410), and in 2011-12 they were rebuilt to 750.7 (today's 750,711 and 712).

Road Name History:
Czechoslovak State Railways (in Czech Československé státní dráhy, ČSD) was the state-owned railway company of Czechoslovakia.
The company was founded in 1918 after the end of the First World War and dissolution of Austria-Hungary. It took over the rolling stock and infrastructure of the Imperial Royal Austrian State Railways.
After the dissolution of Czechoslovakia at the end of 1992, the company was divided into the state-owned České dráhy (Czech Railways) and Železnice Slovenskej republiky (Railways of the Slovak Republic). The fixed infrastructure was transferred to the successor countries according to location; the remainder was divided by 2:1 ratio.
