Happy New Year to all!
I have some Umbauwagen (AB3yg.756, B3yg.761 class) which I run with steam locomotives, usually run 4 cars including a car which has a first class section (Fleischmann 5097):
My question is, where are the first class wagons usually placed in the train, particularly a train with 4 short cars? Close to the locomotive or as far away as possible to avoid steam, smoke and sound? I appreciate your input.
