British Rail Class 370 APT-P

Description
Come on, Does it even need an introduction?

Well, heres one anyway

The Class 370 "APT-P" or Advanced Passenger Train Prototype, was a train built by BREL (British Rail Engineering Limited) from 1977 to 1980. They were used on the West Coast Main Line between London Euston and Glasgow Central. The APT-P is the most powerful domestic train to have operated in Britain, the eight traction motors fitted to the two central motor cars gave a total output of 8,000 hp (6,000 kW). This enabled the train to set the UK rail speed record of 162.2 mph (261.0 km/h) in December 1979, a record that stood for 23 years until broken by a Eurostar Class 373 on the newly completed High Speed 1 line. The train is famous for its special ability to tilt its body up to 9 degrees to cope with the twists and turns of the WCML at higher speeds. The trains were used for public testing from 1979 to 1986, where they were withdrawn from service and the entire APT project was abandoned due to a lack of funding.

FEATURES:
As the Second train on the workshop, ACTIVE TILTING TECHNOLOGY!
Realistic exterior and interior
Realistic cab
a top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h)
8 cars
Guards Area (with functional "signal" button for when the train is ready to depart)

Controls
All controls except speed and brake are in the cab, labeled to avoid confusion



MAJOR thanks to BTF for making Round trip to Glasgow (the video about the APT-P) And the people behind APT-P.com and so many more, Without those, this creation would probably not have been possible

Could you perhaps create a version without the power cars? They're a bit of an issue on some parts of track.

the issue with the 390 is the curvyness

since this exists you have a chance and opportunity to make the class 390 which would be hella cool
