Marklin Rail Zeppelin In Z Scale 8876/88761

Marklin 8876 Z Scale Rail Zeppelin

Marklin 8876 Z Scale Rail Zeppelin

While first exploring z scale I came across the Marklin Z scale Rail Zeppelin model numbers 8876 & 88761.  I thought this was just a whimsical locomotive buy upon further research, I found the Marklin Z scale rail zeppelin is based on a locomotive designed in Germany in 1929 by Franz Friederich Kruckenburg.  How fast was the Rail Zeppelin?  The record it set of 144 mph stood for almost a decade and a half.  Marklin has offered the z scale rail zeppelin in 1982 as model number 8876 and again in 2010, model number 88761 with updates including a 5 pole motor and a sharp wooden storage box, it quickly sold out.  This really is a neat little model that holds true to the original it was modeled after.  You can still find the Marklin Z scale model here and there, but the are getting harder to find.  This is truly a unique piece of obscure history that Marklin has done a great job it duplicating in z scale.
