Did any steam locomotives ever travel faster than Mallard?

With today being the 75th anniversary of Mallard' s record run of 126mph, officially the fastest speed ever travelled by a steam locomotive, I am interested to find out whether any steam locomotives have ever travelled faster. I have read in a National Railway Musuem book that other steam trains may have travelled faster in the United States, but we're unrecorded because fast running was illegal.

'Mallard' still holds the official World speed record for a steam locomotive, as it was recorded as part of an official test run, with the locomotive hauling a dynamometer recording carriage between it and the train. The test run was undertaken to test braking efficiency officially!

It is indeed possible that the record may have been broken elsewhere unofficially, but how was the speed measured? Speedometers in the steam locomotive era were very inaccurate - for one thing they need regular recalibration, to take into account the fact that wheel diameter decreases with tyre wear, causing the speedo to read 'fast'. Most were fitted to the driving wheels, and it has been shown that these can suffer slippage at speed and under load, causing them to rotate slightly faster than if they were totally gripping the rails.
