You are absolutely correct, no train crew was allowed in the RPO, and it was placed behind the locomotive. If the car carried a mail storage car, which was simply a locked baggage car, it was placed between the RPO and the locomotive. The same rules applied to the storage car for the crew. This must be the reason for the handrails on the baggage cars. I have never seen this on any of the NG lines, but I'm sure it probably happened.
