The last one from the 1940's event at the Severn Valley Railway - you will get fed up if I put on any more maybe! Well, here is one of the locos arriving from Kidderminster and they have to pass over the 'safety loop thing' ( not sure the correct Railway term ) to the driver.

Well Done Pete, It's nice to see a train. We tend to forget on the 40's weekends that it is held at a Steam Railway location. I saw them exchanging these Loops or Keys a few times and wondered what for. I guess it is a health and safety thing.

I know what you mean about posting to many images of the same thing. I have hundreds I could post from both years; best not to overstay our welcome hey.

We need another subject now? (8-0)

See the SVR thread regarding this...

Nice cature of the passing of the token. This by the way is used by trains using a single line. Once the driver has the token, he knows that it is safe to use the route, and the signal man having removed the token from his machine knows there a train in the section.

Also gives him something to do. Just thought you'd like to know mate.
