The second prototype main line gas turbine-electric locomotive built by Metropolitan-Vickers, Manchester. Even less successful than 18000, it was eventually rebuilt as an electric locomotive, No.E1001 and later E2001, for driver training in the very early days of the LMR Crewe-Manchester electrification.
