Train enthusiast Bob Knight would be the first to admit that speeder cars are probably mislabeled.
"They look like they speed along the rails," said Knight, of Sandwich, Illinois.
But speed is relative.
Truth is, most speeder train cars have a top speed of about 35 mph, so we're not talking NASCAR-type speed.
And with speeders, top speed is limited to the pace of the slowest car.
As a result, they typically zip along at 15 to 25 mph with frequent stops at scenic places and for bathroom breaks.
