Can you imagine Jack and Rose in the prow at 100 MPH?
Is there currently a train in the Western Hemisphere that does a hundred?

I love cutaways.

There are a number of trains which could do 100 if the were allowed and had the track to do it.

Remember, the United States Has the Most-Advanced Rail System in the World.

U.S. freight railroads will get $23 billion worth of upgrades this year.

Far more freight moves in the US by rail (vs. truck) than almost any other country in the world.

We had one a couple years back that was doing 78 mph.

Through the curve rated for 35 mph.

Not actually through the curve, more like through the guardrail and down onto the freeway. Oops.

Video made this very morning. I can vouch for references to 40mph gusts as they've been battering us all day as well.

The electric multiple unit nearly spoils the day!



Interestingly, there wasn't a diesel loco in tow.

One is usually tagged on at the back, to assist in the event of the steam loco suffering a problem.

This looks like a UK locomotive, could be Scotland, Wales, or India though.

From the scenery I'd have said India at first glance.

A bit of inspired internet ferreting says it's Italy!

The 740-278 locomotive returns to devour the rails on 2 April thanks to the efforts of the National Museum of Transport and the Ferrovie dello Stato Foundation.
This morning the redevelopment of the boiler and the journey with the historic train scheduled for Easter Monday were presented.

A couple Soda Locomotives were imported for use in NY, but the only ones built here were by Baldwin in Philly for use in Michigan.
