[OSM-talk] Overpass or XAPI API servers for 60, 000 node queries?

I ran your query on my server and it completed in 90 seconds, even 
though another big query was already running. True, I do use an SSD for 
the database, so it is very fast. However, it proved that there is 
nothing in your query that gives Overpass indigestion.

The public servers do run a fairness algorithm to prevent big queries 
from shutting out others. You might try reducing your timeout value as 
asking for such a long time will likely get the request bounced.
