Re: PC: Re: NH Cabooses

What class were the NYC cabs?  I wasn't aware of any NYC cupola caboose
after the wood ones were disposed of in 1963.  The B&M had some identical
cabooses though.

I still say PC gets the award for weirdest/ugliest cabooses, between these
cars and the Santa Fe ones with the "chopped top" -
