ICM locomotive series 1800:

 

In 1987 there was a drawing of a new 1800 series locomotive. It never made it, except in model.

Back in 1987, in the passenger car repair shop, I found a drawing of a new locomotive, based on the new intercity trains.
This drawing of course was a joke. Who made it I still don't know, maybe someone local in the mechanical department, or someone higher on the ladder at headquarters.

Any way I showed this drawing to the owner of my favorite model shop.

He then made a model of it. The model shop does no longer exist, but it was model shop "de Sprinter", in Dordrecht, the Netherlands.

A nice item for my Fun and Fake article.
