Connection time at Dus airport for train

My flight is scheduled to arrive at the Dus airport in late June at 1340 from LAX on Airberlin.

I need to take the train from the Airport train station (not the local train station under the terminals). The first and most convenient train leaves at 1520. Can anyone who has done this before tell me if it is possible to get off the plane, go through immigration, claim luggage, take the Skytrain and get to the train station by 1510 = about 1-1/2 hours?

I realize that luggager claim and immigration can vary, so I am only looking at general estimates.

Also I have yet to determine if the the ticket cost I might buy for the above departure can be used to reduce the cost of the new ticket assuming I miss the connection.

Thanks for any advice on this,

Hi Rick, I think you already got my response via Flyertalk. 1.5h should be very fine in DUS. I never waited more than 30 mins for immigration + Luggage in DUS.
