      yea, your right, although i was imagining the little trains we have around here that do a nice 20mph.

      It would make a cool selling point when they try to sell the car.

      lol that's funny as hell. They usually have a police car escort the train around the park, but that may be only during the busy season (Nov-Dec).

      Some of my fondest memories are of riding that thing as a wee little boy

      In a park, I would hope they slow down at crossings!
