Series T 669.0 motorised locomotives were intended for heavy shunting and were based on type ČME 3 locomotives developed especially for the Soviet Union.

Locomotive T 669.0001 was produced as a prototype together with two series ČME 3 wide-gauge locomotives in 1963. The six-axle series ČME 3 locomotives were developed especially for the needs of the USSR, where they were subsequently exported in large numbers (a total of 7455 units). Production of series T 669.0 locomotives for the needs of Czechoslovak State Railways (ČSD) was then transferred to Slovakia to SMZ Dubnica, continued from 1967 until 1969. A total of 108 locomotives were produced for ČSD and others were produced for industrial railways. The locomotives served primarily for shunting at marshalling yards and for pulling manipulation trains. Most of the series T 669.0 (later series 770) locomotives have now been taken out of service.
