43: speedometer

The Holliday’s speedometer is mounted above the engineer’s left side on a ball and pocket swivel. This allows the gauge to be adjusted for comfortable reading. The gauge shows the train’s speed measured in feet per second, and the speed is read from the last car in the train (which means the speedometer can’t be used to detect wheel slips when pulling out of the station).
