For the first time in 50 years, a steam train has reached 100mph on Britain's mainline rail network!

Fantastic achievement and great that it was allowed to happen on the main line in 2017 in the era of strict regulation and red tape.
Full credit to all concerned for making it happen.
I look forward to seeing some regular 90 mph steam train trips in the future..........with passengers!

seems incredible for a main line feat ....i cant imagine this speed in australia due to track maintenance
