I Travelled southbound from Euston to Victoria on 29th January 2022. This was the first time in a while. There were reasonable spaces between trains so there was no reason for any signal checks. However the entry into Euston from Kings Cross was much slower than usual. Also on the run out from Green Park towards Victoria, the train accelerated and then braked and travelled at a much lower speed than usual. I know that the route from Kings Cross to Euston is prone to corrugation and I suspect the Green Park to Victoria section is also affected. Could these slower speeds be in place to manage noise levels?
I have noticed what seems to be slower speeds between Victoria and Pimlico this week, and I too assume it is noise related. It was a really noisy stretch of late, but the slower speed meant my podcast listening pleasure was not completely destroyed
There was an emergency speed restriction due to a track fault in the Victoria area earlier this week that necessitated an early shutdown for extended engineering hours (I think that was Wednesday night).
