The first turbine locomotive in Czechoslovakia was completed in February 1958. The engine was named TL659.001 and designated with the number 3914 by the ŠKODA factory in Plzeň. Originally meant to be on show during the EXPO 58 World Fair in Brussels, it fell victim to reconsideration due to problems with its operation. The heavily modified engine underwent its first railway tests in March 1959. The locomotive hauled a record freight of 6486 tons on May 15th 1959, but mere two days later, a fire broke out in its engine room. This event ended not only all further testing, but also the whole life of this unique locomotive.
