Not dropping any hints whatsoever. It was simply a like minded friend discussing the potential of the V4 to be something special. Nothing more, nothing less. No hints, no special knowledge and certainly nothing of any note to report. I don't do that sort of thing. I prefer to be up front. If there's anything I know that I can't say, I don't say it! If you wish to infer, that's on you. I was simply enjoying talking about an LNER design.
