|By the time the locos reached Salisbury it was time for 33011 to be removed with low fuel. Note the driver is carrying something that remotely resembles a cricket bat but,
thanks to information provided by Nick Lawford, this in fact turns out to be a
"shoe paddle". It is to wedge between SR train collector shoe and live third
to electrically isolate a train in an emergency. It was sometimes carried on
special diesel trains that needed running round or shunting to place on third
rail if they had to go between couplers.
