This is the autotrain working to Tiverton the 'Tivvy Bumper' with the loco propelling the train. The loco is one of the class of 0-4-2 tanks built in the 1930s specifically for this type of work.
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.
