The Norfolk Southern passenger speed at milepost 148.1 reduced from 65 mph to 60 mph. With proposed realignment at Mifflin and Port Royal a speed of 80 mph would be possible through the 1.9 degree between milepost 149.4 and milepost 148.6. The proposed realignment in yellow form milepost 148.1 to 147.5 would potentally be capable of 110 mph.
