> BART ran up to 80 routinely when new (cut back to 70 some years ago to reduce maintenance cost).

A friend of mine who worked for BARTD before it opened said the unofficial speed record was "let's see how vast we can go", which turned out to be something on the order of 100 mph, at which point all the traction motors in the train flashed over.

How fast did the CA&E operate on 3rd rail?
