And I thought I have seen each and any mind boggling contraption...

The rear driving wheels of the coach rolled on the rails.
The front wheels were not touching the rails.

The train braking was provided by the trailer only,
the braking system was not compatible between the two vehicles.

The receiver
(Conductor ?) braked the whole in the stations and in the descents,
by actuating the handbrake which blocked the wheels of the trailer,
on order of the driver of the coach who activated the horn of the coach,
according to an agreed code.



Amazing that this poor little bus was even capable of getting the RR coach in motion !
