Just a query from across the Atlantic about those who occupy the cabooses on your larger freight companies. I was having a look in a Model Railroader which had photos of the inside of a caboose which had a toilet, cooker and bunks, which seems to indicate that brakesmen travel quite long distances. Is that correct. In the days in the UK when we had guards on freight trains they had to sign knowledge of the 'road' and even then very rarely went more than a hundred miles, more likely forty to sixty before they changed over with another man. Any info out there, it was just a thought thats all, one of those things that I am just interested in finding out.
