    The UK equivalent of a caboose is called a guard van. So they are being told to add a caboose.

          Guard would refer to the Conductor aka Senior Conductor aka Train Manager, i.e. the guy on a non driver-only service who checks the doors are open, collects fares/checks tickets and responsible for the on board management.

          It is some years since UK freight trains have run with a "Guard's Van" on the rear, the majority being DOO operated with ground staff being provided as necessary at yards or sidings.
