Freight train manning in uk?
what is the normal crew of a heavy freight train. If personnel other than the driver are carried where do they ride and are there any rest and toilet facilities etc?

Only the driver is on board. When i used to drive trains some locos would have a toilet inside but there was also another crew member with me then. Now the train would have to stop if he/she was desperate

Very hardly ever, only the local trains could have them. The caboose has been replaced with the aid of the EOT , or end Of educate gadget, repeatedly referred to as FRED , for Flashing Rear end device) . The EOT has a marker mild , and a few of them screen brake air stress and relay air strain readings to the locomotive via radio modem.
