A quick stop

Fairbanks-Morse speeder 'Busta' on brake tests on the WHR. The tape on the left of the track is for measuring the stopping distance. The GPS being held gives the speed. In all, three stops were done each at 5, 10 and 15mph. With the rails being wet from the rain, this gives the worst-case stopping distance.
