Slow speed question

While messing about with various engines today I timed one @ 3.75 inches per minute. This is a B'man 4-8-2 light Mtn with DCC, slowest speed it will run without any hesitation in both forward and reverse. What does this amount to in MPH? Thanks from the math challenged.

0.5681818181818182‬


math:
3.75" x 160 / 12 / 5280 x 60 = .5681818181818182‬


inches moved x 160 scale / inches in foot / feet in a mile x minutes in hour
