In case anyone is wondering, I'm talking about this route: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2225 ... ute_AddOn/

If you're traveling towards London St Pancras, then you're OK - until you come out of the tunnel at London St Pancras, in which case you'll derail if you're going too fast.

Going the other way, out of London, and you get this...

As all of the scenarios above demonstrate, trying to perform a Speedrun (where you try and get from source to destination as quickly as possible, with no regards to any speed limits) will result in hitting a Class 395 train that is on the line - no matter which train you choose to drive. (Assuming that your chosen train can go above 140mph.)

Ouch.
