Up to 2 vehicles can be marshalled behind the brake van on a fully fitted train (steam era) with the brakes working.  It was done for marshalling purposes to minimise shunting moves when picking up or dropping off traffic, or (particularly on the ECML) at the behest of the guard to steady the ride of the brake van at the higher speeds.  The train pictured can run up to 55 60mph assuming the milk tanks are loaded (they were restricted to 45 50mph empty) and could run up to 60mph without them (45mph for short wheelbase vehicles was introduced in the late 60s).  ECML fully fitted goods and fish trains were famous for liberally interpretation of those limits, encouraged by the use of pacifics and V2s, and the ride in the van could be a bit, um, lively...

 

 

Note maximum permitted speeds for milk tanks corrected to the speeds permitted in the 1960s.

An unidentified 45XX rolls into Pencarne with the 11.25 Local Service from Exeter St Davids. This shot was taken from the Old Boarding School, on School Lane. and also of interest is the Methodist Chapel to the left of the picture and Whites Cottage on Hill Lane to the right.

At the risk of being labelled a revolting pedant (and I am capable of being both those things), maybe the 45xx is unidentified because it's a 5101...
