Re: PC: Re: NH Cabooses

The NYC bay window classes were N7, N7A, N7B, N7C 

I think the wood NYC cabooses were around until just before the merger. The
NYC N6A was the final wood caboose killer - and I think a Union agreement had
something to do with it.

I will try to double check tonight but I also think NH had about 5 PRR built N5s
