The ICETRAIN is a ground-patrol vehicle of gigantic scale used to cross the vast plateaus of the frozen ice planet, Nala. Its temperature – independent power source is a twin turbine with nuclear burners. The truck measures over 180 feet, but it’s not as heavy as you might expect. The burners inside of the vessel are very voluminous and require a good amount of space. The solid rubber tires are heated up by the surrounding tubes. The wheels sink down through the hard layer of snow and find their grip on the ground.

The ICETRAIN serves mostly as a patrol vehicle to secure the ground-trade routes of the Nala plateaus. This requires a machine and a crew to live various months on its own.

The captain and her navigation crew enter the ICETRAIN through the main door, which is 24 feet above the ground. The captain lives in her luxurious cabin behind the cockpit. The radio operator works underneath the cockpit. Twelve additional maintenance dwarves work and live onboard, but their living quality is far below the captain’s luxury.

Dylan, whose incredible sense of color and light I admire, created two wonderful images for this volume, illustrating the ICETRAIN in the environment of the frozen planet Nala. The moody sunset shot on this page shows a discovery crew of the Nala Patrol Department. Another piece from Dylan is the spectacular cliff shot on the previous page, with the ICE – TRAIN sitting on the edge of Nala’s central ocean, I am very grateful for this collaboration.
