R00563. GT3 in Marylebone Goods Yard. May,1961.

1961/05.R563. An interesting exhibit at the Institute of Locomotive Engineers 50th Anniversary Exhibition at Marylebone Goods Yard in May, 1961 was the experimental gas turbine locomotive GT3. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of visitors made photographing this unique locomotive somewhat difficult.

 

Built by the Vulcan Foundry at Newton-le-Willows and English Electric at Rugby in the 1950s, it was not a success and scrapped in 1965/6.
