Records for speed were broken on many
of the American railroads in 1902. Among
the exceptionally fast runs reported were
these :

March 24, a train on the Burlington road
ran from Eckley to Wray, Col., a distance
of 14.8 miles, in 9 minutes, or at the rate
of 98.6 miles an hour.

April 15, on the Wabash railroad, the
ISO miles between Tilton and Granite City,
111., were covered in 180 minutes, including
stops. The actual running time was 158

June 21 a mail train on the Harrisburg
division of the Pennsylvania road ran 132 i
miles in 129 minutes. This was said at the

time to have been the fastest long-distance
run on the Pennsylvania system.

June 30 on the Mohawk division of the
New York Central railroad, the "Twentieth
Century Limited" made the 148 miles be-
tween Albany and Syracuse in 145 minutes,
including a stop at Utica and several slow-

Nov. 25 a limited train on the Lake
Shore road ran from Elkhart, Ind., to Chi-
cago, a distance of 101 miles, in 100 min-
utes, this time including several slow-downs.

The fastest regular trains in the United
States run between Philadelphia and At-
lantic City. The schedule calls for a speed
of from 63 to 67 miles an hour.
