|N-5F Class Data|
3 cars 2 renumbered 19575,46160 ex PC 19575,19576 ex PRR
The N-5F was an eight-car class of improved N-5 cabins that lacked the improved collision protection found on the N-5A. On its right side it had a large tool box suspended from the sill like that found on the N8. The picture of CR 19575 shows what looks like a fuel fill on the side? PC 19574 ex PRR 479701 was scrapped before renumbering. 19575 was built 8-18. See N-5 for additional data. Other cars were PRR 477150,477227,477335,477457, 478503 and 479701.

|Modeling the N-5F|
Bowser produces an excellent model of this car. Most cars had roofwalks removed, ladders cut down and a plate installed on the right side of the end platform. The trucks in the kit are also incorrect and should be replaced with a leaf spring type with journal bearings. Steps may have to be moved out toward the ends to clear the larger trucks, this was done on the prototype.
