Prototype Era
Era 7 (1972 to 1982) British Rail Blue (TOPS)

Manufacturer description
The original full specification configuration for the APT-P was to comprise fourteen cars with the two power (Non-Driving Motor) cars marshalled at the outer ends of the sets. However, it soon became clear that the use of two pantographs, one on each power car, was unsuitable for the overhead power (OHP) wires in place on the West Coast Mainline at that time.
