Handing over the token

Trains: another from my visit to Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway.

Most of the 14 miles of track on this third-scale live steam railway is single track. Trains may only progress onto the single track sections when they are in possession of the line token. This is often held at a signal box controlling the section. Here, the driver on the incoming arrival is leaning out of his cab to hand the line token over to the driver of the blue train waiting to depart.
Lovely shot, looks a tricky spot to be hanging out the cab!

Super shot and really interesting information. I heard about handing over the token on one of Michael Portillo's railway journeys.
