    Background: A seven-coach train pulled out of London's Euston Station on Thursday (April 27) on the first stage of a two-month tour of Britain to promote the Common Market.

    Known as "Impact Britain", the custom-built conference train is sponsored by the Confederation of British Industry, which will provide closed-circuit television lectures and a wealth of literature on the Six.

    The train will call at 24 main cities during the tour, staying a full day at each stop. Businessmen will be accommodated in four lecture coaches, a dining car and a bar lounge -- and there is a teleprinter on board to enable visiting executives to contact their offices.

    The project, inaugurated by Sir Christopher Soames, Britain's Ambassador to France, is expected to cost about GBP60,000.
