Person in lieu of token[edit]

I have removed the sentence stating "pilotman" is an abbreviation of "person in lieu of token". This appears to be a backronym like "cape", and the quoted reference of Kichenside and Williams doesn't seem to mention this origin of the term (having checked pp 97-99 and the glossary in the 2008 edition). -- (talk) 08:53, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

Yes I felt the same myself when I added the Rulebook references. I've never seen any official railway documentation that mentions 'person in lieu of token'. Dr Sludge (talk) 20:28, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
