Doesn't look like this thread has gone anywhere,
so maybe I can help to get it started.
I've ridden many of the short lines and narrow gauge lines out in the West,
and they typically operate at low speeds.
When I asked the conductor on the Durango & Silverton how fast the train run,
he replied that they usually roll at about 20-25mph.
I have a rail truck that takes about 3 minutes to go one foot!
Maybe I'm overdoing it,
but I think we should strive to slow down our trains as much as we can.
