18000

Rail Album - BR 18000 A1A-A1A Gas Turbine Locomotive Number 18000 was powered by a gas turbine "turboshaft" generator, which itself was started using a diesel motor. She was used on BR's Western Region on express trains out of London's Paddington station. The normal procedure was to save fuel by using only diesel power when moving the locomotive between Old Oak Common depot and Paddington.
