Slip Coach. A way of keeping Express trains running at speed, whilst allowing passengers to alight at a secondary station, or to be transported along a branch line without having to get out of the carriage they left London in.

Needed a good brakesman on the slipped coach to properly slow the coach and bring it to a gentle halt at the station. Some trains had more than one slip coach to be slipped at different stations.

Something that wouldn't happen nowadays as virtually all trains are multiple units -nor would allowing spectators to stand so close to the running lines..

Anyone else having trouble posting the new looped videos that won't play as Gifs? :((

Anyway, worth clicking on:
