Amtrak Trains are Fast!

April 24, 2008

I played with a Garmin GPS unit on my Amtrak ride from Philly to Harrisburg and was amazed at the speeds our train was hitting, especially in the rural areas near Lancaster, PA.  The highest speed recorded on the journey was 111 mph, and the speed at the instant this photo was taken was 108 mph!
