The Advanced Passenger Train (APT) programme is remembered by many as one of British Rail's greatest embarrassments, an ambitious but ultimately unsuccessful design. The APT-P multiple units incorporated ideas that were well ahead of their time, most famously including a computerised tilting system which allowed the trains to navigate the tight turns of Britain's ageing railways up to 40% faster than anything else of the time.
