Technical Details

Basis

Hugo is based on the Schienenzeppelin, an experimental German rail-car built by Franz Kruckenberg in 1929. The Schienenzeppelin was a railcar fitted with an aircraft motor, which was pushed forward by a propeller installed at the back of the locomotive. Due to safety concerns, only one of these engines was made, and in 1939, the Schienenzeppelin was scrapped.

Livery

Hugo is painted silver and blue.
