Prototype information

Built, for some unfathomable reason, on the chassis of a Standard Five steam locomotive, English Electric's Gas Turbine demonstrator was powerful and fast, but expensive, hard to maintain and very, VERY noisy. English Electric's own piston-powered products were clearly preferable to British Rail, and the GT3 was but a strange side-note in the development of modern railway locomotives.
