In 1990 Annie M.G. Schmidt and Fiep Westendorp were asked to make the 'kinderboekenweekgeschenk'. It would be their last joint project. When drawing the train, Fiep encountered the trouble she always had with technical subjects.
To inform herself she went to the Railway Museum in Utrecht. "I looked at all kinds of models there, but I did not like it. Trains nowadays, do not have wheels with spokes anymore and that's just what I like to draw. "You know what," Annie said, "we're making a party train. Then you can draw your wheels with spokes. "And that's how it happened," Fiep said in an interview. (source: fiepwestendorp.nl)
