  • Speed Tables?

    I swear I saw a thread that had a link to a website that featured speed tables. I can't find it. I've tried Google, but only find a little bit of information on Model Railroader's website.

    Please aim me in the right direction.

    I received a PR3 for Christmas and am eager to get the fleet properly speed scaled.

    I need a little more information to know what you are looking for.

    Is it Decoder speed tables, or just a train speed table?

    Here is a link for speed scale;

    JMRI has speed scales, this link has speed scales;

    Tony's Train Exchange;

    The picture below has speed scale how-to, by using a ruler.

    Unless someone else can help you, I'm lost as to what you seek. Sorry!

      Thanks for the response. I'm looking to program the speed steps on steam engines, so that each locomotive will perform more like the prototype. I've found tables for a Climax, 2-6-0, 2-8-0, 4-6-2 and a Dreyfuss Hudson. Off the top of my head, I'm looking for a 2-8-2, 4-8-4 (GS4 and J), 4-4-0 and a few different Shays. I know there are others I'm looking for (and escape me now), but if there is a website that has these, they'd probably have the rest.
