In a prior discussion of PC cabooses I wrote the following:

The new caboose from walthers is based on a International design and
are similar to either N7C cars built for the Peoria and Eastern in 1966
and/or the N12 class cars built for PC in 1970-71. The kit is closer to
the P&E cars, except for the style of windows. The N12's had the same
style flush mount windows, but in a different location(s). The kit includes
a NYC style baywindow ( short and funky) that they apparently styled
from the P&E car. N7C's were numbered 21496-21499 and N12's were
numbered 24500-24549. The style of roof on the kit probably doesn't
match either PC car but for the interpid a Athearn bay window cab roof
could be installed ( not by this cowboy <g>). The N12's also had the
cupola mounted closer to the roof than the kit, which is doable.
