Railway Performance Society Magazine - Milepost


There has been considerable interest in the performance of the Class 800s, since their introduction in mid-October on the GWML.

It has been decided to publish the initial logs on this web-site, together with a summary of fastest times and a comparison with current HST post-2008 Fastest Times and WTT times, and with other data that becomes available.

A power point file is included which provides detailed analysis by RPS Technical Officer Dr David Stannard, but please note that this is a very large file (19mb), so it may take a significant time to download. 

We will update the log file regularly, and create further files, as the extension of electrification progresses.

Could you please send suitable logs for publication to rpseditor@aol.com.
