FAST TRAIN FROM SELBY - Posted: August 27, 2016 - 11:02 AM Quote and reply
This morning according to RTT an HST ran non-stop Selby to London King's Cross taking 125 minutes and arrived 15 minutes early at 1034. This was an extra train run by VTEC for a proper RUGBY match i.e. the Rugby LEAGUE Challenge Cup Final, average speed not great at 83.6 mph but there was 44 minutes added for pathing/engineering allowances.

The return is booked back to Selby in 109 mins, much better path.
