E. Budd , a workman employed at the Erie
railroad shops at Jersey City has invented a
locomotive which it is expected will make
over eighty miles an hour. The works are
similar to those of a ferry boat. An engine
is being constructed by the company , in fact
is almost completed and will be tested in a
few days. The wheels make three revolu
tions to one exhaust.
No. 1 leaving McCook at 12:10 , Friday ,
April 3d , made the fastest trip to Denver ever
made by any train , taking all draw backs in
to consideration. Engineer Bailey made the
run of 143 miles in 3 hours and 15 minutes ,
including 3 stops , which was an average of
44 miles per hour allowing 5 minutes for
each stop , which is a low average , the actual
time was 48 miles per hour. It is the best
run ever made by No. 1 between McCook and
Akron. Engineer Bartlett's run of 112 miles
in 2 hours and 45 minutes was also an extra
good one , considering the restriction to mak
ing up time on the first 24 miles where the
advantage is great owing to down grade.
Had he been allowed to make up time over
the entire division his average time , includ
ing one stop for water , would have been 2
hours and 30 minutes , or 4G > miles per hour
after deducting 5 minutes for a stop. A very
good average when contending witliC broken
springs on one side of engine. The actual
time ( all stops deducted and estimating 5
minutes for each stop ) was 255 miles at the
rate of 45 miles per hour. Taking into con
sideration the grade no better run was ever
made in the west by a regular passenger
train of 7 cars. Jimmie Burns and Brakeman -
man Keim held on to the rear end as con
ductor and 1st mate , respectively.
