LNER Kitson-Still Experimental Steam/Diesel
This is a historical article. For more recent developments, see Hybrid train
A steam diesel hybrid locomotive was a railway locomotive with a piston engine which could run on either steam from a boiler or diesel fuel. Examples were built in the United Kingdom, Russia and Italy but the relatively high cost of fuel oil meant that the designs were not pursued.

The first diesel units to run on the rails of a British Isles public railway were the small Grazer unit on the L.N.E.R. in 1925, the Beardmore three-car train on the L.M.S.R. in 1928, and the Kitson-Still locomotive on the L.N.E.R. in 1928-29.
