It was for a while, it is built to mainline standard, you won't finf=d a gradient steeper than 1 in 100 on it.Pilot wrote: I'm almost certain that the S+C has never been the fastest route to anywhere But no, it isn't on there.
Maybe fastest between and Leeds and Glasgow, but that's about it.Translink wrote:It was for a while, it is built to mainline standard, you won't find a gradient steeper than 1 in 100 on it.Pilot wrote: I'm almost certain that the S+C has never been the fastest route to anywhere But no, it isn't on there.
The reason it didn't continue as the main route for LMS (post grouping) was the following
(Whist Shap is 1 in 75, it's only 1 in 75 for 5 miles, compared to a 16 mile 1 in 100 on the S+C)its steeper gradients and greater length meant it could not compete on speed from London to Glasgow
Anyway, that's getting slightly off topic. Any more guesses?
