This engine was initially built to run with Dfenz's carriages but that never really worked, partly because of the M-motors in the engine.
I've recently rebuilt it to use the PF L-motor and as I did that I decided to put it into MLCad as well. As a result I now know that there are way more parts in this model than I thought: around 950!
Like in real life, even though it has the Intercity branding it will be pulling freight as there's no more work for these engines in the passenger service.
