What's he fiddling with?
Another picture from the Boy's World 1967 Annual that we saw the cover of yesterday. This painting is captioned "An emergency squad of British Railways at work at the scene of a crash." and is in the "All Action Trains" section of the annual.
What I'm wondering, and hoping that blog reader can put me right on, is:
What's that guy doing fiddling with the handwheel on the side of the crane?
I think that if there is a handwheel there, it's for applying the brakes. Now, I might be wrong, but one thing you really don't want when trying to lift a crumpled coach, is for someone to let the crane brakes off!
