They have the former NYC 19216, which is a typical "19000 series" caboose which actually included some 17000 and 18000 series cabs.

The drawing is dated 1941. I can provide you a PDF copy in the interest of preservation if you contact me.

The car is longer, the window spacing is different, slight interior differences, and other minor details set this off from the "typical" NYC cabooses. Where did the 1941 date come from? I suspect it's actually drawn a bit after that.Upon further review, I see it is a drawing for New York Central 20100-20149 wooden caboose, Lot 732. I can barely make out the date September 22, 1941, in the lower right hand corner.
