Could not decide between v1 and 2 in the end choose v1 as slight different composition and showed the timeless human side of railway operation as a member of the platform staff pass the time of day with the train crew while awaiting the signal to move off.
V2 shows arrival, v3 departure and the signal gantry v 4 and v5 are shunting scenes, as a timeless railway shot v4 appeals to me as it could have been taken anytime on a northern railway station in the 1950s or 60s and v5 has plenty of activity
