I don't know exactly where to post this. I stumbled on it while looking for gears/motors. If you go to:Then click on "Produkte", the "Applikationen", then scroll half way down, you will see an award to Faulbaber for the world's fastest (I think, I'm not that up on German) HO locomotive. It clocked 97.48 kph, roughly 60 mph. That's a scale 5,220 mph.
What does a sonic boom sound like in HO???
Anyway, to the main point. There must be a plethora of Athearn Hustlers out there that easily exceed this figure. Let's see the record challenged. American engineering pride is at stake here!!
