Remarks & Notes 
An old shot from an Open Day at Crewe Works in 1984. One of only three Advanced Passenger Trains built was on show. These revolutionary 155 mph tilting trains were cancelled not long afterwards due to mainly political reasons. Much of the technology was used on the current Pendolino trains. No 370 003 was saved and is on display at The Railway Age at Crewe. This one and 370 001 were ignominiously scrapped, therefore wasting millions of pounds. There are many websites telling the fascinating story of these trains.
