No.
You are a Limey. Not a Limey.

But hey, feel free to love me anyway.

Here's Bittern under way last weekend.

This image is a scan from one of Monday's newspapers. A less than perfect solution but I have been unable to find the same photo on the web. However, I think it's a good picture to conclude the thread.

No wonder they steam away, they couldn't see where they were going.

Isn't air resistance one of those things that increases exponentially with speed?

Sure, drag increases as the square of speed. If your car takes 100hp to go 100mph, it'll take 400hp to go 200mph, and 900hp to go 300mph.

Bear baiting? Yes.
Mastur baiting, certainly.
Horse baiting? Never.

No matter how much we swoon over the steam age, it's gone. Maybe the jet powered Black Beetle is the way of the future.

No way is that jet-train in the same book as the word 'efficient'.

No, it was a quick way to build a fast train to test if the existing infrastructure could handle fast trains before they sunk a bunch of money into high speed trains.
