The cab front of a 1929  Standard Stock "A" end driving motor (DM) car showing the covers for the three jumper sockets.  The sockets are for auxiliary, brake and control, the last nearest the camera.  The telephone/emergency lighting cable is the thin cable, at waist level now, below the driver's window.

The Ward coupler below the central buffer was automatic for coupling, when the two cars were pushed together but had to be manually uncoupled using a hook on the end of a pole to move the latches back.
