|N-5E Class Data|
1 car 22983 ex PC 22983 ex PC 19573 ex PRR 477594.|
The N-5E was a wrecked N-5 which recieved paired rectangular windows and a streamlined cupola similar to the N8's. I have photos from Rails Northeast of 22983 showing it classed as an N-5B, caption of photo states that photos of an identical car numbered PC 22853 have been taken, I do not have any photos of that car. The caption also states that it was thought that 22983 was a one-of-a-kind car. One of my sources list the renumbering as follows: PRR 477594 to PC 19573 3/4/71 to PC 22983 4/25/73 at some time to CR 22983 then to CR 20076 on 11/23/79. Rails Northeast lists CR 22853 ex PC 22853 ex PRR 19590 while another source lists it as PRR 477690 renumbered PC 22853 11/26/68 renumbered CR 22853 9/15/77. As far as PC 19590 see class N-5D above. 20076 is preserved in Utica, NY.

|Modeling the N-5E|
This one car class could be kitbashed from a Tyco streamlined cupola caboose, a new sides and ends with rivet detail must be added. End details and/or a carbody from a Bowser N-5 or N-5C might be useful.
