This is the Advanced Passenger Train (APT for short). It is British Rail's Inter-City train of the future.
Three of these 125 mph electric expresses are being built by British Rail Engineering Ltd., and the first one is due in public service between Glasgow and London in 1979. Before then, extensive testing of APT will be carried out and you may be able to catch a glimpse of tomorrow's train today.

Your train formation
To ensure that you travel in comfort, the number of passengers carried will be limited to the seats available. Standing will not be allowed. If you have not reserved your seat please obtain a Boarding Pass from the APT office. This will entitle you to an unreserved seat in the coach shown. It is important that you board the correct portion of the train as there is no public access through the power cars.
If you have any other posters of the APT-P - Please let me know !
