This is an interesting picture from the New York Central Rail Line. It shows a combination passenger car and locomotive. I have trouble understanding how this particular design could be very practical. I would think it would be very hot there beside the boiler. I would also think this would impair the vision of the conductor. So, I am not exactly sure how it works, but it is an interesting picture.
