    My wife ,mother, father and myself went to Hoboken N.J. fot a rail fan trip. I had a chance to speak with Ross Roland the owner and engineer. I asked him about the speedometer going up to 120 MPH . he said it will go that fast. He has done it himself and we would be exceeding 75 on this trip. any way here are some pics, I hope.

    I was trackside at a few spots that day, did you see me? Ha. On the return trip I was near Tuxedo, NY, just above the NJ state line. She was moving quick at that point. And light was fading, I didn't attempt a shot, didn't want to miss a moment od seeing her go by. What a rush as she sped by about 20' from me. If you ever come up to the area again, pm me.
