Although CrossCountry's Class 220 and 221 Voyagers are capable of 125mph, many of the trains they work are booked to take the relief line between Didcot and Reading, leaving the main line to real HSTs (and Class 165 and 166 DMUs).
220.019 trundled through Purley Cutting, west of Tilehurst, with 1O84, the 07:25 from Newcastle to Southampton Central, on 9 September 2014.
