James,

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.

:w:


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.
