I'm curious with regard to a minor point associated with the freight rolling stock depicted in the game, but prefer not to join a railway forum for enlightenment. The wagons each have two types designated b or nb, which I interpret as braked or non-braked. I would expect one of these trucks to be martialled to the end of the train with the brakeman's platform facing the rear. However as illustrated, in the game these trucks are always orientated with the platform/housing at their forward end.  I have tried researching this question, even using French terms but found nothing definitive.

So is there any railway buff sad knowledgeable enough to clarify whether the depicted orientation is correct?


EDIT: There's YouTube video relating to Verdun in WW1 in which one scene shows a train composed of a plurality of the type of trucks in question; these are martialled with the 'manbox' at the leading end of the truck, so it seems there's no issue here.
