| The BR Class 390 is one of the fastest electric multiple units operating in Britain, with a top speed of 140 mph. However limitations to track signaling systems restrict the units to a maximum speed of 125 mph in service. In September 2006, the Pendolino set a new speed record, completing the 401 miles length of the West Coast Main Line from Glasgow to London in 3 hours, 55 minutes, beating the 4 hours 14 minute record for the southbound run previously set in 1981 by its ancestor, British Rail's Advanced Passenger Train. The APT retains the ultimate speed record for this route, having completed the northbound journey between London and Glasgow in 3 hours 52 minutes in 1984 which included a 5 minute delay due to a signal fault.|
