Given a full power start - on a dry rail and on level track the various AC variants of Electrostars do 0 to 60mph from 44 to 50 seconds.
On 3rd rail DC acceleration is similar to around 30mph..but after that, acceleration is much slower than AC due to the units being programmed to limit current...
No. Only the 14.34.
This diagram only today:

1D66 1904 St Pancras-Leeds
Thurs 13th am. Yes. RTT shows it running, EMR journey planner shows it running. But after paying for my ticket, EMR app advised the journey planner is incorrect and train starting at Derby and to take an alternative service to Derby! Crazy!
Also RTT is showing 1F70 return terminating at Derby...
The 2040 from St Pancras to Sheffield was a 7 car 222. Quite full as far as Luton and Bedford. By the time we arrived at Derby.. Only a dozen passengers transferred to the reinstated HST brought out of the sidings to regain its diagram.
