Winchcombe Station - swapping the tokens
Winchcombe Station - swapping the tokens
The driver of the class 26 diesel electric locomotive is swapping the single line tokens with the signalman. He is giving up the one for the section he is leaving and receiving one for the section he is now entering. This is a pleasing shot of the actual moment of truth when they change hands.
