Not to beat a dead horse, but I don't believe the guy is holding on
a "big handle to throw the switch", but is resting his hand on a
control box for the double-slip. He would need two levers (one for
each of the six points) and the it would have be much longer to
leverage to throw them. One other point; he wouldn't be sitting down
either; he'd constantly be jumping up. Just my opinion.
There _are_ two levers in the photo, both with grips. He has his hand
on one, the other is flat on the ground outboard of the first, rotated
to its full clockwise position, with the handle pointing straight at
the camera.
