The brakevan, also known as the guard's van, guard's car, or caboose(in American narrations), is an important part of every goods train. It carries the conductor and is equipped with a strong brake to assist with slowing and stopping the train. From here, the guard can keep an eye on the train in case of problems. In Railway Heroes, four of them are named. Their names are Levi, Seth, Esther and Judas.
