The Lionel N5C Porthole Type CaboosesThe Virginian N5C Porthole Caboose No. 6427-60 was available only in 1958. The suffix "-60" is found on the box end and only the number "6427" appears heat-stamped in YELLOW on the sides of the car. This caboose was lighted, and came with bar-end trucks that had only one tabbed coupler. Forgeries exist of these cars. To detect repaints look for sanded down rivets. There are no variations.
