Locomotive Tender

So, am I seeing things or not?

I was doing some research on differing SP Co locomotive tenders, including those found on the absorbed T&NO locos. Info is scant and images are fewer, but I have seen at least two photos that show what appears to be a brakeman's doghouse on the tender, off-set to the engineer's side and on a Vanderbilt Hicken Style oil tender.

I know of no other SP locos that had a doghouse on the tender.

So, can anyone help to confirm or disprove that the dogouse tenders were in fact employed on the T&NO.

Thanks in advance!

/Normally, freight operations required both a head-end brakeman and a brakeman at the rear of the train. Often, there wasn't a lot of extra room in the cab. The fireman didn't always like to share his seat with the brakeman and there wasn't really enough room to stand without getting in the way of the fireman. By 1937, new locomotives were built with enough room to seat the head-end brakeman in the cab. Older locomotives were modified during shopping with a small cabin on the top of the tender for the head-end brakeman. This was called a "doghouse".
