Southern
Formation of Pull-Push Trains
(1949 - 1954)

 

The following is a Summary of Vehicles Fitted with "Air Control"
apparatus for working Pull and Push Services between 1949 and 1954.

 

Pull-Push set no.730 at north-end Brighton platform 3 on 13th September 1948. It is entirely possible that this might be the stock for the Brighton - Horsham service awaiting its locomotive. The train would then start from the south-end of platform 3 thence heading off to Hove and stations to Horsham.
