I'm 90% sure that the only 40 ft PRR Evans autoloader cars were in
Class X31A (Class X37B cars were equipped for auto parts loading),
though I'll have to check after I get home tonight to make sure.

As for number series, welcome to the briar patch known as Pennsy
Class X31A! Here's a link to Rob Schoenberg's page on Class X31

Cars equipped with racks are scattered throughout the number series -
you'll have to go to the notes section of the Pennsy ORER listing to
locate specific car numbers. I can look them up for you tonight if
you have a specific year in mind.
