Now on test British Rail's best

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.

On track with APT

The first Advanced Passenger Train arrived at Shields Depot, Glasgow, in February and is currently undergoing a series of brake, tilt and other technical trials to be followed by regular test runs between Glasgow and Preston.

These test runs are designed to prove the reliability of equipment which will eventually be subjected to several thousand miles of public service operations each week.

Initial staff training has begun and will get into full swing over the next few months.

Have you received your APT Staff Information brochure? If not, ask your Area or Depot Manager for a copy.

One method of transport that will run on any basic fuel is the train.

Our plans for electrification today mean we can keep going in the future.

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.
