Default Fall plates

Any articles ,diagrams or photo's on the above to minimise the death defying leap for the fireman.The layout I am planning will have gentle curves and some points.

In gauge 'O' I make a 'T' shaped piece out of black plastic card which sits between the loco and tender, and glue a fireman and driver in to it one looking forward, the other looking back. See attached. As the loco moves along the fall plate wobbles animating the crew!
