I measured the loop and worked out the dc loco was doing an average scale speed of 110MPH, it didn't appear to be that fast to me, so it was going like a bat out of hell. I didn't have time to measure the dcc loco, I'll do that tonight, but I estimate it's less than 50MPH - I'll see tonight. I'm astonished by the results, it really didn't look that fast to me.
I also ran in a brand new Bachmann class 105 dmu last night and at the end timed one lap at full throttle - 128MPH, again I was astonished as I didn't think it looked that fast!
