Ex GCR Steam Railmotor pushpull trailer coach
The GCR introduced steam railmotors in 1904. By 1922, their unpopularity led to them being withdrawn, and the coach parts were converted into trailers. By1931 they wre paired with ex LDECR 6 wheel coaches and in 1933 these were replaced with ex London suburban coaches, converted from all 1st class to composites with a brake compartment replacing one end compartment.
Ex GCR C13 4-4-2T locos were adapted for pushpull and used with these coaches in South Manchester area up till end of 1950s.
C13 pushpull locos were also used on the Chalfont to Chesham branchline with ex Metropolitan stock until line was electrified at end of 1950s.
