Can anyone tell me the most common driving position on narrow gauge steam locos in France and Spain; RHS, LHS or either ?

Hi David, it’s a complicated answer I think. In France they are on the left as in the UK (very strange) in Germany and Austria, there on the right as is Switzerland and Italy I think, not sure about Spain. I checked this out a few years back when I was designing setting up my track plan loosely based on German Austrian practice as I have European LGB. But there is usualy someone that knows better on this forum.
