That is a nice looking boxcar. And since I model PC in P&LE territory,
Yes as I have modeled one. Start with a Branchline riveted side boxcar with a fishbelly side sill. Modifiy the side sill to represent the new sidesill that the P&LE added. Add an appropriate 10' wide door. The door is probably the hardest to model since there is no readily available door. You could use a modified Athearn "Railbox" door or perhaps a door from the Atlas ACF PD boxcar. On mine I used resin doors that I made from a modified Athearn/Genesis boxcar.
Microscale makes 2 sets of P&LE boxcar decals. I think that I used a combination of these to letter the car.
