D78 Stock

Control Desk - right side

The device to the left is the Combined Traction Brake Controller - CTBC.  This device also incorporates the Deadman device - the red handle must be kept turned clockwise to overcome this. If the handle is released, the emergency brake will activate.
The red 'knob' to the right and above is the selector switch - positions go from 'Shutdown' and through a variety of options including an Inter (neutral) position and reverse.  The Selector can only be operated by the insertion of the appropriate key - visible here with the yellow grip). The two red buttons below are the door open buttons for the offside doors of the train - there is no close button for these doors on the drivers desk.
