English Electric gas turbine GT3 owes its 'steam' like appearence
to the fact that it was built onto an ex LMS class 5 steam loco chassis.
The tender carried diesel fuel.
it is here seen on the GC/Met line with the 12.38 Marylebone / Nottingham train.
It had a troublesome time and only lasted about 12 months
