That would be an interesting idea to add speed limits to a timetable or employee rule book for a model railroad.
I remember an article, I think in RMC, about printing up your own railroad passes.
Speeds are kept low and slow on the N.I. & E. due to track and equipment.
#8 (0-4-0) can hit a pretty good clip at full throttle!
A saloon is never far away at San Miguel or Whiskey Flats,
with the Bad Burro, Bloated Goat, or Woodie's Cantina to choose from.
Jet engines on a two-footer?
Would probably run out of track before reaching top speed!
Nye, Inyo & Esmeralda Railroad
The old "formula" for locomotive speed was calculated as 1.1 times driver diameter.
OK then, how do they explain how SR&RL 2 foot gauge 0-4-4T's could haul a train at 60 MPH when they had but 36" dia. drivers!!!
