All freight trains used to have a Goods Brake / Guard Van at the rear in which the Guard rode. His duties varied according to the type and itinerary of the train. Many goods trains contained wagons without automatic (vacuum) brakes or a through brake pipe. The guard had to be familiar with the geography of the route and to be prepared to apply the handbrake on long descending gradients to assist the locomotive with braking; hence the need for such a heavy vehicle at the rear.
