I would really like to have a photo of an N-3 in blue, does anyone have one they would like to contribute?

N-3 Class Data
52 cars 19600,19654,19660 ex EL ex ERIE C-100 to C-169.
Riveted steel cupola type, built 1941. Only 3 of these cars were renumbered and got blue paint, a few more were assigned to M of W service, most were scrapped. Some of these cars were built with high speed trucks similar to those used on the Erie milk cars.

Outline created from photos of CR 19674(N-3A) and CR 46101 by T.W.Wolfgang.

N-3 Dimensions
Length over
30' 11 1/8" 24' 1 5/8" 15' 11 1/8" 9' 1 5/8" 11' 8 7/16" 14' 5 1/8" 43800

Source : EL drawing of N-3A class, the two appear to be similar
with the exception of riveted vs welded construction.

Modeling the N-3
All scales
Scratchbuilding this one is your only choice, it is quite different from any available model. I am not aware of any brass models either. The drawing on the N-3A page is close and with the addition of some rivet detail could be used to build an acceptable model from styrene.
