|Weltschaft/Ruhrgold - The German Train.
From Germany - Right on time - the Inter-Continental Express. Powered by Ruhrgold!
Starting life as Weltschaft, the German engine's probably the late developer of the National Engines. His costume was pretty much universal - green and grey with the gold double-headed eagle motif. He changed from Weltschaft to Ruhrgold in London during the 1993 revamp, and shortly after became the ICE in Germany. Personally I can't stand the new costume, he looks like a bad copy of the other nationals.
Ruhrgold races with Joule, in London he lost and collapsed at the end of the race. Joule solicitously gave him a hand up to his feet... and a knee in the codpiece. Poor Ruhrgold, doubled over in pain, is pushed by a very unhappy Joule who whipped him off!
However, in Bochum Ruhrgold does rather better, and comes 2nd in heat 2, qualifying for the final behind Poppa. So he races with Joule in the final, and gets knocked out by Caboose, I think?
