Nope.

P.S. There's more in that clue, you just need to decipher it a little bit better. :wink: :lol:

S-Transport takes the majority of the points, so he's the winner.

The other operators I was looking for were Abellio and National Express, and the train can indeed do 160 Bananas as it's top speed :lol: (would have preferred it with Km/h on the end ;) )
