During the Innotrans 2010 railway fair, the news came out that Metrans from the Czech Republic had ordered three EuroRunner diesel-electric locomotives. Metrans exploits container terminals and offers all-in intermodal services in Europe. All three units have the freight configuration, eg. extra large fuel tank to enable the locos to manage long distance hauls. They have the Mirel and Indusi detection systems aboard, as Metrans wants to homologate them for the Czech Republic and all its neighbouring countires, and Hungary and Slovenia.
The first Metrans unit was painted in blue and white in the first week of February 2011. The second and third unit were repainted in March. The first unit, 761 001-7, was delivered to Metrans in March 2011 and first seen behind a container shuttle on 12.03.2011.
