The December 1927 issue of Along The Line
, vol. 4, no. 5, shows the total track mileage of the New Haven RR was 5,387 miles. That appears to be the highest length mentioned in a quick review of my issues. That means that by the time the parlor cars reach the NHRHTA's receiving destination, they have traveled about 1.36 times as far as the total NH track miles.
For Mr. Derek that means they will travel about 1.87 times as far as the total NH track miles.
For the NH fans in Australia they will travel about 3.23 times as far as the total NH track miles. With the Earth's circumference being approximately 24,901.55 miles (40,075.16 kilometers), the parlor cars will travel almost 3/4ths of the way around the world at 0.7 of the planet's circumference.
We should probably check all of the journals for hot boxes upon arrival at the final destination for these parlors.
