Sorry, these are dumb questions but I am curious in adding scenery to my layout and what's prototypical for cabooses.
1. Is it prototypical for utility lines (power, telephone poles etc.) to cross railroad tracks or do utility companies try to stay away from crossing tracks?
2. What is common for the direction the caboose crew (conductor?) faces when the train is in motion.
I know this should be common knowledge but I confess lack of common knowledge from time to time (my bad!!)
