Re: The Scheinenzeppelin
- Hi Jacob,
I have a rail zep in HO. I did not know that it was shortened. In any
case When I tried to run it on a test track of old Mtrack it did not do
very well. The curves tend to slow it down a lot. The track came from an
old set in the days when there was only one curve type. it may run
better on the more modern track with a wide radius.
As far as the Zgauge one goes I would like one also, and may get lucky
some day. I would think that the same would apply to it, ie. on a tight
curve it will tend to slow down because of it's length. No first hand
experiance, just a guess based on the HO model and physics.
Let me know of any info you get on it please.

I have studied photos of the real thing and I noted that in some pictures
it has a four-bladed propellor, in others a two-bladed.
