The SR&RL 2 footer prided itself,
for reaching speeds of 60 MPH on flat tangent sections.
This in itself is going against the old theory,
that a steam locomotive's top speed, was approx. 1.1 times the driver diameter.
The little Forneys and Prairies had drivers around 36" dia. (Sullivan, is that right?)
so theoretically the top end SHOULD be somewhere around 35 MPH.
Where is Mr. Ripley?
The plot thickens...
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
