The railway is alot faster than walking, and there is no real wait time. My game runs at about 30 FPS, and a round trip takes about 10 seconds.
I always only use a single cart on each track. (Most of my former cart related deaths has been due to a stranded cart that a dwarf went to pick up, - and was hit by another cart.)

The main purpose is was to see if it could work. :-)
It has only been used for moving metal bars and marble down to the magna forges, i.e. a free fall shaft would have been a lot easier and effiecient.
The plan was to use it to move gold furniture up from the magna forge, but I haven't bothered to set it up yet.
