Here's a small piece of software for measuring the speed of your model trains. I've no idea of how accurate it is but it should give some idea. Fun anyway.

I know it is not a piece of "software" but here is a way of calculating speed using not much more than a few dogspikes...

Hope this is useful but would like the feedback,
