At the end of April 2016 CZ LOKO completed the comprehensive modernisation of the first of its ex-SNCB Class 12 freight electrics at the ČMŽO Přerov works. These machines are to be used by CZ LOKO as a leasing fleet. Early in May what is now known as the EffiLiner 3000 made its first dynamic tests using the electrified test track at the works. The "3000" refers to the locomotive's nominal power rating. The second photo shows this refurbished machine together with TEC Bodov Dol's recently overhauled electrics 44-073 and 083, which were ready to be moved back to Bulgaria.
