Anyone know where a brakeman sits when the train is in motion? With and without a cabose.

I've got a couple of books just on cabooses. The best being "The Railroad Caboose" by William F. Knapke with Freeman Hubbard. There are several photos of trainmen(i.e. brakemen) sitting in the cupola. The conductor usually was tied up with paper work I imagine. I think they would look good in the cupola and standing on the rear platform guarding the rear.
