I believe I read somewhere,
that the SR&RL varnish, would often speed along at 50-60mph.

That kind of speed would probably be terrifying,
for passengers traveling on the High Line of the Silverton.


Most of the narrow gauge lines,
and even some of the standard, out West that I'm familiar with,
typically kept their trains at a very modest speed. 

Some were down-right pokey,
like the Uintah Railway, trying to negotiate their many tight curves.
