Buzzy, please call or email these guys and tell them it will never work.

Obviously, they didn't get the memo.

That camera angle was useless. Do electric motors only have 1 gear? no transmission?

Two minutes after it went 190, how fast could it go Kenneth?

Normally the electrics do not have a transmission. There is so much torque available from 0 RPM that they don't need one.

That's a trick question Buzzy! Was it traveling westbound from Chicago at 5:00 pm CST, or eastbound from Los Angeles at 11:00 am PST?

Yes and you were in the dining car having a sandwich.

Are we clocking the train's engine, the dining car, or the caboose?
