The sign on the approach to the curve north of Congleton station indicates that the enhanced permissible speed (EPS) is 105mph compared to 80mph for conventional rolling stock. An Avanti West Coast Pendolino takes full advantage as it races through the station with a Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston service on 27th December 2019.
