Re: The Way Our WK2's are Shipped via Rail

So do they ever yell "Launch Vipers!" before rolling them off?

Re: The Way Our WK2's are Shipped via Rail

Rough calculations show they're probably doing about 20mph. Margin of error makes me guess 15-25mph.

Re: The Way Our WK2's are Shipped via Rail

Those railcars are much wider than they look in the video. Still, there is a lot of money rolling in and out of them. I would guess they don't go all that fast.

Re: The Way Our WK2's are Shipped via Rail

When I drove boats, I used to watch them unload 5000+ cars from the massive RoRo's ( RollonRollOff car carrying ships).
They would deliver the "drivers" by bus and then all hell would break lose as they all came screaming out of the ship, parking them all in a line close together. They probably got to 45Mph on the docks, with lots of tire squeal. They were all sorts of makes and models.
Was quite a feat to unload some many cars so quickly. I am sure there was the odd crash, but I never saw any. When they do it often, you get used to it.
