I seriously doubt that any are still in service.  In the NYC/PC era trailers
the largest trailers were 40'.  There are no 40' trailers in intermodal
service anymore, only 45's and 48's.  You may be able to find some which were
retired and sold I know of a 40' one in Carlisle PA which is a storage
trailer.  There is also an old NYC 20' flexivan which is used as a storage
trailer at the Harrisburg Intermodal Yard.  It still retains it's NYC
lettering/number and has it's wheels removed.
