Ex Southern, PC 18436 at Macungie, PA on January 23, 1979.
From the collection of Jim Hebner (68k)

N-5H Class Data
20 conveyed, 14 renumbered. 18422,18423,18425-18429 ex IUT 200,201,256-251 not sequential.
18430-18442 ex PC 18430-18442 ex Southern 2900,3000 and 3100 series.

Bay window type, built 1946 and 1947. I do not know if the ex IUT and ex PC/SOU cars are identical. Only 7 of the ex SOU cars were repainted. The ex Southern cars were obtained by the PC in 1971.

Modeling the N-5H
HO scale
Based on Athearn or Walther's bay window caboose. There was an article on modeling Southern cabooses in one of the modeling magazines a while back, this could be used as a starting point for this class.

Other scales?
Any tips would be appreciated!
