I rode an X'Trap from Werribee to Southern Cross today.I've used my stopwatch between Km posts before. I think my train (a V'lo) covered a KM in 25 seconds. That is fast. I had a speedo on my old phone. It didn't really work in V'los but it did in Xtraps. I think about 90 was the fastest I've travelled in an Xtrap. I can't imagine it was too comfortable going 120 on the Werribee line.
I was a bit too excited to try to check our speed before Williams Landing, but, while looking out for kilometre posts and using my stopwatch I think we travelled at 120km/h for over 7km along the express route.

Has the world ended and the sky fallen in?The trains have not been modified so the ride would not be too comfortable at high speeds but I can't imagine that 95 would be much worse than 90.
It was a blanket removal of the 90klm maximum. If anyone's really keen you may experience 95 up or down the hill between Holmesglen and Jordanville.
