Some planned passenger train haulage has been available from SM42s that have been sold on from PKP use.  For the Summer of 2014, NEWAG’s SM42-700/34 (the former SU42-519), SM42-700/35 (the former SU42-516) and SM42-700/38 (the former SU42-528) were loaned to PKP Intercity for use between Gdynia and Hel.  All three of these have now been sold on – the first two to LOTOS and the third to Torrems – so future passenger work by these is unlikely at best.


SM42-700/35 waits in the carriage sidings for one of the evening TLKs out of Hel, 10/08/14 (JW)
