GWR Autotrain

This shows 1417 with W212W forming the daily GWR Autotrain working.

This worked through Thurstaston at 6:50am as e.c.s. to West Kirby, then back to Birkenhead Woodside at 7:23am.

The coupling is a modified Bill Bedford coupling, giving a fixed, but sprung connection for running in both directions including dummy vacumn pipe and auto control rod.
