In the early 30's this experimental German train powered by a BMW aircraft engine set speed records that would stand for decades. There was talk of putting them into service but one can only imagine the havoc that the 4 bladed propeller would cause when pulling into the station!
The original had only 2 axels. This one has been "Legoized" with 4. The model is strong and has run for years at public shows without undo care & feeding! It never fails to attract attention and thanks to it's long wheel base can take cornors at full throttle! A *.MPD file is availible on the Bickshelf if you would like to build one too!
