[Talk-GB] Virgin Train Traces

Has anyone ever approached Virgin to get GPS traces from their trains?
Would it be worth asking or do we have enough coverage? Richard Baker
 is "General Manager for Virgin Trains Liverpool, N Wales & Chester
to London" and is happy to receive emails so if we think it's worth
asking I will go ahead and do so. I just asked him about getting the
trains to update http://mapme.at/ with their current positions and
he's just told me it would be too much work, but supplying us with a
day's worth of existing traces (perhaps with the time "anonymised")
should be less effort than the constantly updated stream I was
originally asking for.
Anyway, opinions appreciated.
