Bradwell Station, with train
Bradwell Station, with train
View NE, towards Newport Pagnell; ex-LNW Wolverton - Newport Pagnell branch. Station and branch closed to passengers 7/9/64, for goods 22/5/67. An auto-train is working the branch, powered by an Ivatt Class 3MT 2-6-2T. (The site is of course now enveloped in the New Town of Milton Keynes).
Auto train
An 'auto' aka 'motor' train, or 'push-and-pull' train ran with cable connections from the driver's special compartment with window at the other end of the train (usually one coach), so that when in pushing mode the driver controlled the locomotive remotely, only the fireman staying on the footplate.
