My description of the process was as I understand it. The car could have been spotted next to the caboose, but the article in a very old Trains Magazine that I recalled had it next to the locomotive for easy spotting.. As to where the cab was spotted - anywhere out of the way of the switching moves, I suppose.
Short answer - I don't know that there was any set location to leave the caboose while switching.

Ok, going for a second dumb question of the day:
if the peddler car immediately followed the engine and was dropped at
the depot, was the caboose spotted anywhere in particular? A slight
familiarity with another rr's practice prompted this question.
