Pennsy’s last new caboose design was what many railfans think of when you say Pennsy caboose – the 199 car N-8 series of 1950-1951. They originally carried PRR Nos. 478020-4782l94

At the PC merger, the 161 remaining cabooses were renumbered 23200-23402 . (18-20 N8’s were sold to the Illinois Central Gulf (by PC).

Conrail used the same numbers as PC.The N-8 had a small streamlined cupola, and was particularly notable for its side mounted handrails which were attached to steel car body extenders that were about 4-feet high and jutted out about 2-feet over the end platforms to provide extra protection for brakemen standing outside the cabin. This was extra protection for a trainman hooping up orders.
