Re: PC: NYC express boxcars as work equipment?

In light of lack of "proper" evidence, I propose a judgment via the "plausibility rule."
 If it can be properly justified, and the depiction can be feasibly done, then it should be OK. If reailty can seemingly bend the rules sometimes, then we in the "87 feet to 12 inch" crowd can too.

Hi everyone,

Last night while browsing the shelves at the LHS, I found one of these
Walthers express boxcars that was rebuilt from an old WWII troop sleeper:


I thought it was an interesting model, but my layout has no passenger
service. (Not by my choice, the PRR killed it off several years
earlier.) However, I know that a lot of old passenger equipment ended up
in MOW service.

Which begs my question: were these troop sleepers ever used in MOW
service on Penn Central? Or were they even still around by the time of
the merger? Just curious if anyone has any information on these cars.
I'd figure I'd ask before I spend $20 on one. :)
