70000 Britannia doing 100mph!

70000 Britannia doing 100mph!

Just a little bit of fun. Did a couple of (rough) calculations and worked out that this is how 70000 'Britannia' would be like, if she was doing 100mph in steam days. In reality, she was doing about 65-70mph. The location is Newton St Loe near Bath, now obviously in today's modern world, Britannia wouldn't do 100mph, but just imagining the sight of why the Britannia class were such powerful express engines and possibly the best that British Railways ever made.
