Well, "right conditions" would certainly have been a well ballasted and maintained mainline, as the railway would have had in those days. And straight track, descending grade, light load - plus "touched" 60 mph and not necessarily sustained. Also no speedometer, and mileposts possibly timed by a great story teller like Gil Lathrop - an early influencer of a young narrow gauge geek.

Cheers,
