An estimate of the influence the finiteness of particle velocity has on the results of a fractional differential (anomalous) model of cosmic ray propagation in the Galaxy with Lévy flights developed by the authors is considered. The results from Monte Carlo simulations of particle diffusion in random walk models with finite and infinite velocities are presented. It is shown that considering particle velocity finiteness has almost no effect on the cosmic ray energy spectrum obtained for E > 1 GeV in the anomalous diffusion model with Lévy flights for nearby young sources.
