Though I don't mind weird science I plan to make it more rare and less anachronistic than seems to be the implied default. Does anyone here have suggestions for good sources of information on more period-appropriate experimental or prototype airships and automobiles?

Thanks. I also looked a bit into early submarines. It would be great to have stats for some of those diving, floating, flying and driving contraptions. Perhaps another Globetrotter's Guide?
