Zeppelin L55 - The full storyHere it is, the full story behind my drawing. This is based on a newspaper article from 1937, when the Zeppelin Stone was built. I therefore can‘t guarantee that it happened exactly like this.
L55 was built as LZ101 during summer 1917 and put into service with the german imperial navy on 1st September 1917. On the 19th October, it took off for its second mission, night raid on London along with 10 other Zeppelins. As they approached the city, they were already under AA fire, but at around 5500 metres, this was not much of a problem. Instead, the ships had to face a far worse and more unpredictable enemy: the weather. Three of the airships did not even reach the target and already had to return because of it. After the ships dropped their bombload – around 2 tons each – they ran for home.

Favorite Quotes (to be developed!):
"No other product of man's mind has ever exercised such a compelling hold upon the public's imagination as the steam locomotive. No other machine in its day has been a more faithful friend to mankind nor has contributed more to the growth of industry in this, the land of its birth and indeed throughout the whole world. Those who have lived in the steam age of railways will carry the most nostalgic memories right to the end."
The words of R.F. Hanks, Chairman of the Western Area Board of British Railways at a ceremony in Swindon Works on 18th March 1960, marking the end of steam locomotive construction in the UK with the completion and naming of 9F 2-10-0 No 92220 "Evening Star".
