In Mario kart 64 can Mario drive faster than a train?

According to our testing Mario can drive faster then a train. to get that answer we drove Mario onto the track and drove into the train after it has just passed. This proves that Mario is faster then a train because to catch up with the train that has just passed we would have had to be faster then the train. Also we tested by waiting on the track until we could hear the train right behind us and we would start driving. Soon after we stopped again and we could barely even hear the train behind us.

Why you stay at same place when you jump in moving train or bus?

When you are inside a moving train or bus, you are moving at the same speed as that train or bus, and you have the same momentum, so even when you jump, and are no longer in contact with the floor, your existing momentum will carry you along with the vehicle, under normal circumstances. If you happen to jump at a time with the train or bus is changing the speed or direction of its travel, however, you will find that you do not stay in the same place, with respect to the train or bus. You need to have solid contact with the vehicle for its own changes of motion to alter your own motion.
