    I personally would think this would be a nice route, and perhaps opens the possibility for the rest of the MML as like a "part 2" from Leicester to London. I think at 66 miles (according to my BR passenger timetable), this section would be doable if proper time given - we are now starting to see longer routes - I believe LGV is just short of 60 miles, although it is a straight line.
    It would be nice to include the short trip to Nottingham, which would include Toton Yard, which would provide plenty of opportunities to start freight runs.
