Just a number - as the number itself.

Engineer 1: I need to know the maximum mass for these tracks Im gonna design.
Boss: Let's make it 95 tons, nobody will give a damn!

Not making much sense.
100 tons would be a 'round number'. :D
Just saying.

On the other hand 95tons sounds more erm realistic? People would think: Hey they not just put a random round number there but something different, something unique! And if they look for data they will find it is the twice of the real world max.

I was going to come up with a list of axle loads around the world but it seems those are being designed for 'off numbers' too.
Ok, keep it up with 95.
(Although from a efficiency -perspective it looks like you could just add 5 more tons and have a 'round number'. :D )
