Locomotive is the journalistic work of Friedrich Wilhelm Alexander Held (1813–72). In 1843, Held moved to Leipzig where he published the newspaper, Die Lokomotive (The locomotive). The paper quickly achieved success, its circulation reaching some 12,000 copies per day. His paper was soon banned, even though Held was less a political radical than an advocate for constitutional monarchy. After several attempts to continue publishing in Leipzig, Held moved to Berlin where, on April 1, 1848, he began publishing Locomotive: Zeitung für politische Bildung des Volkes (Locomotive: newspaper for the political education of the people). Publication of Locomotive was banned in January 1849. The 201 issues of the newspaper, spanning the April–December 1848 period, are a direct witness to the revolutionary events of 1848.
