'Pull-Push' is a mode of operating a locomotive-hauled train fitted with the facility for it to be controlled from either end.  Originally pioneered by the GWR, other railway companies adopted the same practice.

Southern Railways introduced Pull-Push trains fairly early on and British Railways continued the practice using converted Maunsell coaches on the Southern Region.
