Something i stumbled across a few weeks back that would go well with people wanting to know whats inside of a C44aci cab. May not be the same as a 93/CF etc, but gives you an idea.

I don't know of anyone who fell off the front or back of an NR and its a PITA not being able to check the front sand boxes or fix problems with the front windscreen wipers . They've found it necessary to block access so you can't get from long end to long end and you wouldn't want to be in a position where you can't get off a locomotive safely via its own ladders , was always good with NRs to step from one unit to another in these circumstances - like something as simple as changing ends with two units . Can't fall off a ladder or trip over in the ballast if you didn't have to get down in the first place .
The top step above the front ladders ensures you will bash your shins into the side plating all too often . The ladders need to be raised and made longer to fix this . It was not something Gonads botched when NRs were built .
Also other silly things like the rear of the inner cab door , the handle is a bit high up and awkward to use . One wonders how they got these things right 16 years ago and then screwed them up later . The attention to details like these is clearly not what it once was.
