A token ring is any ring of stations around which a token can be shunted - the most obvious instance of this being the Circle Line token ring, but in fact any closed ring may support one.

While a token ring is active, a single high-value token (typically gold or silver) is passed uni-directionally around the ring, at a rate of one station per round. Players can only cross the ring's boundary at the station which carries the token - all other stations on the ring are blocked.

(Players are not permitted to claim the token, even if they are carrying replacement tokens of sufficient value.)
