the time. Most of the other speed records were set using the trains,
though. They packed in, started the clock at Chicago basin and timed their
climb to take the train out.
I figure 36 miles and 10,000 ft. climb from Purgatory is about 1/3 of
Hardrock, so it should take about 1/3 the time, plus a couple extra hours
for the class 3 sections, unless I'm missing something?

catwalk on Eolus and the infamous summmit block on Sunlight at
