First off, the C31 cabs had coil springs. C31P cabs had leaf springs making for a much better ride. The P cabs also had electric lights, including a blinking flasher in the middle and red lights on the back corners which also shown white below to light up the platform.A white stripe surrounded the cupola denoting a pool cab.The C31P cabs were the "LTD'S" of all N&W cabs as they rode so smooth after converting to leaf springs.
