So what's going on here then?

I thought my eyes were deceiving me earlier today.

There I was, stood on the platform at Princes Risborough, when a Virgin Super Voyager train whizzed through. Eh? Has Chiltern Railways had an upgrade? There have since been loads more or these trains go through, so I thought I'd best find out what is going on.

Apparently the West Coast main line is closed at Rugby and a 'freight only' line somewhere in North West London is being used to get trains from Euston onto the Chiltern Railways lines.

Later: I've also just found a more recent Virgin Trains press release. Oh - And you can tell that I know nothing about trains. Until corrected, this post had the wrong sort of train (and wrong picture). Oops.
