Locomotive speed record.

With all the announcements of a new train speed record of 554.3 km/h for the TGV, I was interested to notice that the Trevethic Locomotive (this one is a reproduction of it) holds the first train speed record of 8 km/h. Of course this is unofficial. It was only later that people became interested in such things.
