Bio

Ivan participated in the Great Railway Show at least twice during his career, and finished seconds away from setting a new world record once. Once when he again participated in the shunting challenge, he did so alongside Raul, Gina, Ashima and Thomas, but ended up losing the event after championships were awarded to the latter two. Ivan returned home after the show was over.

Trivia

  • The colours of the Russian flag, of which Ivan is painted in, are stacked differently as to how they look on the actual flag; the white and blue are swapped around. This was most likely done for aesthetic reasons.
  • Ivan has been partially modified to work on British railways: he has been given buffers and chain couplings, with the original knucker couplers removed.
  • He shares Butch's horn sound.
