Coincidently, I was watching a documentary on British Rail last night. What became the Intercity 125 and the APT "tilting train" were both designed for a single driver seated centrally. ASLEF wanted significantly higher drivers wages for those trains and insisted on two drivers so blacklisted them, BR gave in and redesigned the cab for two drivers.
