    Another telltale was a set of straps hanging over the railroad tracks to warn workers on top of trains that they were nearing a bridge or tunnel or something else with low clearance. When I was a kid (in the 50s and 60s), freight cars still had roof walks on them, though the need for railroad workers to get on top was disappearing, along with the roof walks and telltales.
