Galloping Geese

Galloping Goose is the name given to a series of seven railcars (also known as "motors") built in the 1930s by the Rio Grande Southern Railroad (RGS) and operated until the end of service on the line in the early 1950s.

Originally running steam locomotives on narrow gauge railways, the perpetually-struggling RGS developed the first of the "geese" as a way to stave off bankruptcy and keep its contract to run mail to towns in the Rocky Mountains in… Continue

Practical Futurism: Fortunato Depero

Ordering a Campari, do we ever wonder who designed the Campari glass? No, we don't. We use to think that the glass always existed, as if it appeared from nowhere. So let's honor its designer - Fortunato Depero!

The Largest Land Plane in the World!

The Junkers G.38 was a large German four-engined transport aircraft which first flew in 1929. Two prototypes were constructed in Germany. Both aircraft flew as a commercial transport within Europe in the years leading up to World War II.

The G.38 carried a crew of seven. On board mechanics were able to service the engines in flight due to the G.38's blended wing design which provided access to all four diesel powerplants. Its wingspan…

Icons of Dieselpunk: Hugh Ferriss

It's hard to find an artist with more influence upon the genre. From Metropolis to Equilibrium, from the dark 1920s imagery to even darker cyberpunk fantasies, the hand of Ferriss is visible. The brave new world he created emerged as Gotham.
