HO Scale Freight Car
PRR N-5 Caboose

55001

History:  The N-5 was the world's first all steel cabin car. Produced in 1914 by Lines East these cars were equipped with archbar, leaf spring trucks and small tool boxes under their sides. While it was referred to as a center cupola, the N-5 cupola was actually 12 1/2" off center. It had a brake lever on each end of the platform instead of the brake wheel. Over the years some changes occured. the top lights and tool boxes were removed, Ajax brake wheels replaced the brake levers, AB brakes replaced the K style, and coil spring trucks were replaced by leaf spring trucks. New end sills, collision posts and new end railings were added. The stove and chimney were moved from the end of the car closer to the cupola. There were a total of 616 cars built in this era. Antenna support system not included. (Drill spots for locating antenna system supports are molded into underside of roof).

The history of the Pennsylvania Railroad rolling stock lettering is as follows:
January, 1930 Circle Keystone Lettering was applied.
June, 1954 Shadow Keystone lettering was applied.
July, 1956 Plain Keystone (black car) was applied.
Early 1960's PRR Initials started.
