Got a query I need help with I'm doing an activity where a broken 313 has to be transferred to selhurst depot from Brighton for a serious repair. But I'm not sure if the couplings on the 313 are strong enough the barrier wagons coupling an the 313 coupling line are below.

barrier wagon a SR BG MK1
