Mug exchange at Consall today

Dave Gibson captured the 'mug exchange' today at Consall, where I was duty signaller.

Peaky leaning out of the TKH with the staff (in its leather pouch) in one hand and the CVR mug I'd given Jon Jon a fiver to get for me from the Froghall shop in the other. My left hand went through the loop of the staff pouch as the TKH approached, then onto the mug, while my right hand grabbed the mug from underneath.

Pouch loop ran up me arm, mug safely delivered! Ta loco crew for that!

Cleaned up nicely once I'd removed Peaky's oily coal dust finger marks off it. Just like these two.
