On a good day for the block operator - in this case Jim Largent - everything comes together and the conductor or engineer grab their Form D movement authority on the fly. Just past the moment of retrieval, the conductor of this westbound train nabs the orders from the hoop of operator Largent.
Just that: to put on a smile, while watching our favorite thing: railroading.
It could be anything, from the people around railroading, to a funny perspective, or just a 'jokingly' grimacing locomotive.
I hope you all have fun with this. :)
