ahhh - you'd be bored - it develops peak power at only 102rpm!        

...which leads me to wonder how slowly an engine can turn before it stalls - i guess there's one whole heap of inertia in that thing to keep it turning and relatively little friction compared to a little motor like our 250.

I've been in the cab of a 1952 vintage railway loco firing up - 16 cylinders each of 567cid capacity (9072cid total) - it was actually rather dull. Whirr, then hum. No fun at all!
