..... you can tell it's an inspector... he's got his back arched... :roll: all signalmen know this isn't good for you, you should "pull" keeping your back straight and using your legs / knees.... (it also means if the wire snaps, you are less inclined to "fly" too far!!) :D

I have a few levers from there in my collection and i did own the last illuminated box diagram until i was offered large sums of money for it. It now resides with a chap who has a complete section of frame including locks and circuit controllers etc...
