Is this a Lemke (Kato) limited edition dummy locomotive?
« on: July 18, 2016, 11:42:18 pm »
Hello All, I'd like to know if anyone can tell me anything about a certain model I acquired many years ago in Stuttgart. To my knowledge Kato produced both the TGV POS and ICE 3 dummy cars to celebrate the TGV runnings to Stuttgart and later Frankfurt (stuttgart services now continue on till Munich and are mainly serviced my Duplex's.) There is very little information on these available so I'd thought I'd turn to the forum. I shall try to attach pictures.

 Any help or info is more than welcome!
Regards Phil

It's possible, I've seen a dummy German locomotive produced to commemorate European some ball-orientated sports event on sale in the Kato shop here in similar packaging.

Edit: actually it was probably this ICE3 dummy: http://www.popondetta.jp/asp/cgi-bin/shop.php?forward=gds_inf&stock_no=571E0101G3100256

Hello @railsquid, certainly looks like the ICE 3 that was vinyl wrapped for the women's world cup in Germany. Here is the only picture I can source of the TGV and ICE. (at such a brief glance it looks more plain as opposed to being covered in footballs?)
