the trouble with your number is that you used a total distance travelled of

438.4 feet (hypotenuse of a 310 foot tall 45 degree angle) and you also used

22 seconds instead of the 22 ft/sec that dave used ... in order to figure

out the exact speed you have to take into account a few things: the fact

that the train doesn't start at ground level and the fact that there is

added distance due to the curving of the hill at the top. unless any of us

know those exact measurements, it is a waste of time to argue about the

exact speed of the lift.

the nice thing about 22 ft/sec is that it is EXACTLY 15 mph

anyway... we should all just agree that it hauls ass up the lift
