In the 1970s, the former Czechoslovak State Railways (ČSD) was in great need of powerful diesel freight train locomotives for medium-weight shunting and line service. For this purpose, the lighter T 466.2 variant was derived from industrial locomotive type T 448. Starting in 1977, it was manufactured by ČKD in Prague in nine construction series (with small differences in each case) with 494 units and was operated by with the ČSD until 1986.
In 1998, the series designation T 466.2 was changed to 742. Many locomotives are still in use today in freight transport for CD Cargo on Czech rails.
