I've been asked for historical information on Conrail caboose number 21216. It was retired in Roanoke by NS last year and donated to a local youth camp. Photos show "N-21" under the number. Class, heritage, and build date are requested. Any leads are appreciated.

Thanks

It's seems the CR N-21 Caboose was documented. Guess these were considered the only "True Built" for Conrail Cabooses. All the others classes were leftovers from other CR predecessors. Any of these groups might be able to provide you with more info than I could.

The N-21 Cabooses were built by Fruit Growers Express for Conrail in 1979. CR21230 is in Elkhart at the NNYCRM it was the only N-21A as it was built on FGE coil spring trucks the only one like that, the rest had leaf springs. The N-21s were the only cabooses built new for Conrail.
