Collet 1400 class 0-4-2T steam locomotive No. 1450 is sandwiched between two auto-coaches as it approaches Bewdley Tunnel during Severn Valley RailwayĆ¢??s autumn steam gala on 19th September 2019. Autotrains were commonly used by the Great Western Railway on lightly used branch lines and could be driven from the locomotive in one direction and from the autocoach (or auto-trailer) in the other, to save the engine having to change ends of the train for the journey back.
