On 31 January 2020 Taurus 1216 903 was sent from Linz to Praha. It is one of the two Tauruses bought in 2019 by České dráhy from RTS Rail Transport Service. Before the start of regular service, 1216 903 had to undergo a T1 periodic repair in the ÖBB TS works in Linz. After its completion, it was moved to Praha using the train Ex 336 „Jižní Expres“ („Southern Express“) hauled by ČD’s locomotive 380.018. Then it was moved to its new home, the Bohumín depot, using EC 117 „Silesia“ hauled by 151.023.
