Default Amtrak (Washington) vs Virgin Trains (London)

Now, compare this with Virgin West Coast from here in Euston to
Manchester. The journey time is very similar at 2h40m but obviously
the distance covered is far less than above.

Well, it's about 18% less.

* New York Penn station to Washington - 225 miles - 82 mph average
* Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston - 184 miles - 69 mph average

Anyone have the mileage for London King's X - York? That is one quick
ride - the 1500 does it in 1 hour 45.
