    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.
