The N20 Class - ex Reading

In 1970 the Reading Railroad had International Car Company build twenty extended vision cabooses (Reading # 94100-94119). These cars wore the modern Reading green and yellow paint scheme. On startup day for Conrail (4/1/76) RDG 94110-94119 went to the D&H, and 94100-94109 went to Conrail. These were the only extended-vision cabooses on Conrail. Conrail classed them as N-20 and renumbered them 22130-22139.

length of 39 feet 1 1/2 inches between strikers; a
height of 14 feet 5 1/2 inches from rail head to cupola roof line; and a
width of 10 feet 7 1/2 inches between extended cupola sides.
