  All I know about the P&E is what I recently came across in the Freight Cars
Journal publication, "Box Car Production 1963-1994," by David G. Casdorph.
  It lists 2 series of 50-foot boxcars with 10-foot wide doors that were given
NYC/PC/CR-type class designations:

class 943B series PE 4300-4349 blt 1964 by the Despatch Shops Inc.

class 944B series PE 4600-4699 blt 1964 by Pullman at Michigan City

  I'd be interested in learning more about what these cars looked like and
their later life with Penn Central and Conrail.
