steam train at speed 33


34067 Tangmere races through Whitchurch, heading for Salisbury – and meanders back past Eastleigh, as Class 08 and 66 diesels deal with freight, passenger trains rattle by, and a plane comes in to land at Southampton airport.

steam train at speed 106


To Winchester, to see 34067 Tangmere head the Cathedrals Express towards Weymouth. Taking the next train I overhaul the steamer at Southampton and wait at Brockenhurst. Tangmere makes a great run over the crossing and through the station. There’s no catching her then until Weymouth where she’s in great demand. I hang around to watch the departure for the Jersey sidings – was it really 44 years ago?

what is speed of train?

The frequency of a steam train whistle as it approaches you is 534 Hz. After it passes you, its frequency is measured as 499 Hz. How fast was the train moving (assume constant velocity)?
