HIGH SPEED TRAIN PROTOTYPE PROVES ITS WORTH

Unhappy experience with small batches of diesel locomotives ordered off the drawing board in the 1950s ensured that extensive prototype testing would precede series production of British Rail's next generation of 200 km/h intercity trains. The prototype High Speed Train completed in 1972 has already proved its value, but further modifications are continually being introduced so as to prove their acceptability before they are incorporated in the next batch of production trains.
