Great Western Railway
I will be taking the Class 43 from Paddington Station all the way out to Reading.
This will put me in a high speed train. I have not driven this train at all save for the very short tutorials.
I hope to complete the route.
I hope to stay within 10 minutes of the completion time goal.
I hope to not speed, run any red signals and stop the train safely at the end of the route.
I completed the route without speeding or running through any Red Signals.
I attained a speed above 100MPH.
I attained a top speed of 120MPH.
I reached the end goal Reading Station 2 minutes early.
My braking was not very good when I stopped at Reading. I did stop successfully at Reading, but 241 yards short and left the last two carriages away from the station.
This was a nice route and a straight shot with no need to stop at any station between Paddington and Reading.
The train built up speed really nice.
Though the speed was higher, the brakes seemed to slow the train quicker - that might explain my bad stop at Reading.
Topping 100 MPH about 15 minutes out from Reading.
