In May 2014 ČD’s Class 754 diesels were granted authorisation to operate on the PKP PLK network. This enabled PKP IC to hire four, for hauling the operator's TLK and EIC services. The first „Goggles“, 754.025, entered service between Gdynia and Hel on 28 June, and is shown on both photos: first together with SM42-574 at Gdynia depot on 7 July and then at the terminus at Hel, awaiting departure with the EIC 5130 „Jantar“ to Warszawa on 9 July 2014. Two of the other 754s are 754.026 and 037, which entered service on 7 July hauling PKP IC trains between Białystok, Ełk and Korsze and Białystok, Suwałki and Šeštokai. The fourth, 754.046, is to be delivered to Białystok depot in mid July.
