LMS diesel shunter with wagons, Toton marshalling yard, 27 July 1939. A London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) diesel shunter on top of the sloping 'hump', where they were left to run down the gradient under the force of gravity. Controllers in the office at left switched the points, directing the wagons on to tracks where they were coupled to the appropriate freight trains. LMS Derby Works official photograph.
