Three, E6ACTa-001 to 003, designated ET25-001 to 003 under the conventional Polish system, are destined for PKP Cargo following the July 2018 Letter of Intent. ET25-001 and 002 wear PKP Cargo’s standard livery, ET25-003 has been covered in red and white vinyls to commemorate the centenary of Poland’s independence. Some of the remaining Dragon 2s are destined for STK of Wroclaw.
