I like this, particularly the way the flagman is looking at the approaching train which makes the connection between human and railway interest. I will refrain from making any Grand Prix jokes. (Bob Avery)

 

Interesting shot with thoughtful use of differential focus. (Ian Cowley)

 

I presume that this was the last lap. The picture is made, of course, by the connection between the train and the flagman. (David Flitcroft)

 

Excellent rendering of a rarely photographed event. The sort of scene I can imagine an officious foreman telling you to go away and not take. Colourful too. (Martin Higginson)

 

Even in this day of modern communication there's still room for flags. some things never change! (Jonathan Cordle)
