The N11 &N11E Transfer Class
The former Penn Central transfer cabooses in the N-11 and N-llE series are only 32' in total length, but have the same size crew enclosure (23' 6-3/4") as the earlier N6A/N9/N9E. Other spotting features are a wider platform side step, no roof overhang, and a simpler handrail system.Built by Penn Central in 1969 - 70 at their Despatch Shops in East Rochester NY.Three N-llE hacks from the Pennsylvania/ Reading Seashore Lines of New Jersey (an unheralded part of the Conrail superstructure), Nos. 250-252, also ended up on the CR tabulations as Nos. 18559, 18564, and 18565.
