NS didnt come about until when the phasing out of cabs came about, at least is my understanding.
They still use them on some locals and in yards, at least around here they do......
Yes they sometimes use them on locals, yard jobs or transfers.
They will also use them with a remote engine so the operator has a place to ride.
When they use them with a remote they call them "shoving platforms"
I have seen a couple "shoving platforms that are rebuilt and painted Maroon.
there is also one that some times runs with the geometry car I think its NS 31 ? maybe.
