High-speed train for city

A HIGH-speed Pendolino tilting train could soon be running on the London to Edinburgh east coast main line, it has been announced.

Pendolinos already operate on the west coast main line and a new 11-carriage version could be used on the east coast line from July 2011.

The train is being built in Italy by train-maker Alstom and is capable of speeds up to 140mph, although it will be restricted to 125mph on the east coast line.
