The Schull and Skibbereen Railway in County Cork used a system of train staff and paper tickets to control the single line sections. The picture shows the train staff for the Ballydehob to Skibbereen section. This had a key attached which unlocked the red wooden box containing paper tickets. These were used to authorise a train to travel over the section of line without the train staff. The staff would be carried by a following train.
