Phot BS: Another new steam loco! (22) RE: BS: Another new steam loco! 22 Nov 09

Sorry Huw, but all mainline steam in the UK is limited to 75 mph, although most would be happy to run higher than that.

Just as a little aside, if a 9f was running at 90 mph (It has been known! Including a fantastic run with the Red Dragon Express), the driving wheels (5 foot Diameter) would be turning at 8 revs a Second!! Anyone fancy calculating the acceleration of the pistons?

Wassail!! Chris
