It's a not loose coupled, non fitted train so why would there be a guards/brakevan?

This is just a little bit begob and begosh but it has some loco hauled trains in it,semaphores,MKIII's and worth the watch. It also has some shocking continuity errors in it too.

Back to OP. Was in the Henry Ford museum a few weeks after 9/11. Was the most spectacular place ever. So many full engines inside and so much more. Well worth a visit if ever in Detroit.

This rather nice postcard, attributed to the Cork & Macroom Railway, has been on eBay for a while now - anybody interested? I'm not the seller.

Some action for fans of vacuum braked diesel trains. 186 was running quite late yesterday due to a bold Wickham of all things so 222 performed the lift from Connolly yard to Grand Canal Dock.
