edit The Star - 8 October, 2003 - Delighted Rail Fans Converge on Baltimore

GEORGETOWN -- Rail fans and history buffs were astounded last month to learn that the famous Rail Zeppelin is to make its new home in Baltimores Railway Museum, and that several short trips are planned for enthusiasts. The rail zeppelin, developed by Dr. Franz Kruckenberg in prewar Germany, set a rail speed record on 21 June, 1931, maintaining an average speed of 142.9 mph over a 6.25 mi stretch of track between Karstadt and Dergenthin.
