APT-E (Advanced Passenger Train) - Paving the way for high speed rail travel in the UK as we know it today, the APT-E was an experimental tilting train developed by British Rail during the 1970's and early 1980's. Powered by gas turbines, the APT-E achieved a new British railway speed record when on 1975 it hit 152.3 mph (245 km/h). After several delays, funding its entry into service became increasingly difficult and the project was eventually moth-balled. - NRM, Shildon
