The running gear for the three revenue-service prototype Advanced Passenger Trains for British Rail differs somewhat from the original design. The truck design and arrangement to achieve maximum carbody cross-section within the restricted BR clearances are described. The current design does not have articulated cars but does feature two-axle trucks with long wheelbase. Arrangements to maximize passenger comfort are discussed.
