    A TPE Class 802 got up to 145mph - A record?

    Various bits of the ECML were engineered for 140mph back 35 years ago. The fact that the diesel speed record happened here and was safe probably suggests to me that this was safe. Time to stop this silly obsession with 125 and consider properly how and where faster limits can be deployed...

    Selling tickets - an offence?

    I'm sure that is the crux of the matter, but it would be interesting to argue the point.

    March 2019 Oyster Extensions Confirmed

    Not that. Cast your mind back further and at one point in time LO accepted oyster there but LM did not. That was subsequently resolved. For the record I have boarded a VT service to auston at WFJ and noone attempted to stop me.

    Split Tickets and Delay Repay
