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

    Class 700's are limited to 102mph, once you hit that speed the power cuts out automatically. You also recieve a fault message on the TMS alerting you to the fact. 377s and 387 would keep going.

    If the boards were erected correctly it IS still the drivers responsibility to obey these. No excuse for disregarding it, even if they recieved no warning about it in the late notice case. As they can be introduced at any time without warning.
