The token

This is the token exchange. The guy with his arm up is waiting for the engineer to give him the token which the engine must have to pass along the single bidirectional track section of line. The signalman is watching from the signal box.
I knew this would happen so I was waiting for the shot but the really great thing is the little girl on someone's shoulders - she's got her hands over her ears to block the sound of the engine passing.
