Here's a picture of an old caboose which sits near the train station in Johnstown, PA. It is marked as C&I 13:
The other side of the caboose has no markings on it.
For many years, it sat at the point park behind Point Stadium in the yellow and black C&I scheme. Many years of weathering deteriorated the caboose. It was removed from the Point and relocated beside the train station parking lot. The faded paint job it has now may be in deference to its current location - beside the former PRR mainline and station. No cars that were used on the C&I ever carried this particular paint scheme. This caboose was made in the style of a PRR N-5 caboose. Notice the differences between it and the following:

Cabooses 55 and 56 were manufactured by Morrison International of Kenton, Ohio. The above prototype photo came from the web site of KATO USA, a fine manufacturer of N-scale model railroad equipment. (Too bad they haven't yet made an N-scale model of a C&I caboose!) This photo was taken in Colver.
