Both ECML and WCML are linespeeds of 125 mph, these are the fastest not including the HS1 at 140 mph
Sorry should have made it clear, fastest stop to stop average.
Is there still the NCL to KGX Flying Scotsman?
Euston - Stoke?
Yes, 1E01. Covers the 268.5 miles in 2hrs 36 mins (according to the WTT), which I make an average speed of 103.27 mph.Is there still the NCL to KGX Flying Scotsman?
Unlikely, it's 1h35m to Stoke and only 1h30 to Crewe.
Yes, I was on it yesterday, ultimately arriving 10 mins late.Is there still the NCL to KGX Flying Scotsman?
115.25 miles. I make that 96.04mph.How does the BHM-EUS non stopper at 1hr 12m compare in distance and average speed?
Also Birmingham to Derby is in part good for 125.GWML? 125mph.Both ECML and WCML are linespeeds of 125 mph, these are the fastest not including the HS1 at 140 mph
HS1 is ok for 186mph.
Hull Trains have stopped serving Stevenage on weekdays, but on Sundays when their 180s are working and the line isn't blocked, they have 4 trains doing Stevenage - Grantham in 43 minutes which is 110.11 mph by my calculation. VT do Milton Keynes - Coventry in 28 mins which is 109.85 mph so its pretty close ! Calculated using mile post mileages from the Quail maps and WTT times.
If Milton Keynes to Coventry, at approximately 42 miles in 28 minutes, runs at 109.85mph, what about London to Crewe, at approximately 147 miles (well over triple the distance!) in 90 minutes!?
147 miles in 90 minutes is 98 miles per hour.
42 miles in 28 minutes is 90 mph though.
(No, I am not doing any more maths for you :P)
I was only copying the information from post #21.
And for those that want to trawl the timetables and aren't sure of the maths...
...42 miles in 28 mins
Miles / (mins/60)
42 / (28/60)
= 90
Have fun looking.
