Kent just gets Better

Javelin train on 140mph test-run

The new 140mph trains will run between London and Kent
Guests on a test-run of the “Javelin” – Britain’s fastest commuter train with a 140mph (225km/h) top speed – have been whisked from London to Kent and back.
The Hitachi train took 30 minutes to travel from St Pancras station to Ashford at an average speed of 114mph. The return journey took 29 minutes.
Southeastern will begin a limited high-speed service on the line on 29 June with a full service from 13 December.

This is the first time I have looked forward to a trip to London, doubt it will be long before I give this train a try.
