Streamlined Propeller Train
This is not another ho-hum japanese bullet train. This is the blow-your-socks-off Rail Zepplin (and, holy mother of tinsel... just look at it fly). It broke all known records in 1931 when it zipped along at 230 kph for approximately 20 kilometers, propelled only by its very large rear propeller. No other train came close until the 1950s.
The best part is, you can own one! Or just enjoy the above and below collection of rare and tinselicious photos.
