Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Monday also saw the start of  a high speed service- that is up to 125 mph - on the West Coast route between London and Glasgow. Unlike the new high speed lines this was an upgrading of an existing routs with a little curve smoothing to allow high speed running. The Virgin Rail service uses Pendolino tilting trains which up to now have had to run with the tilting mechanism disabled as parts of the line were too narrow to allow two to pass safely.
