Schienenzeppelin

2012 airships railway

Franz Krukenberg was the engineer who developed a railway airship in 1929 and thus completed the fastest train of its time. It did not come to mass production. The rail zeppelin was scrapped in 1939.

About this railway airship from Hannover is a silent movie in still images. The text panels are taken from the 1933 propagandistic book “Men of German Action”.
