Sorry, isn’t there a conductor in the cab with the engineer? Perhaps these are solo operations? (Yikes)
I’m not well enough informed to clarify that issue. That whole freight train only had two men on board at the time of the accident. Both died.
I’m not sure of the crew on the Metrolink. Perhaps someone can explain that to us. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was only one Conductor on board, but there may have been several.
Whether one rides in the cab or not, I wouldn’t know either.
