Still in Training

April 21, 1991

In his fine article, James Hill refers to rail as being the crowning achievement of Victorian England but laments "British trains today lumber along, and the service is nonchalant at best." For the last 16 years, Intercity High Speed trains have been "lumbering along" at speeds up to 125 m.p.h. between London and Edinburgh, Bath and Bristol, to name just a few cities. And in May, British Rail will introduce the newest generation of high-speed trains on the London-to-Edinburgh route. They will "lumber along" at speeds up to 140 m.p.h.
