True, but more or less out of our period. WP bought two 40' MILW boxcars of 1948 vintage for to carry Ammana appliances, I suspect as part of a pool arrangement. They were numbered 3416-3417, and rebuilt with 9' doors, nailable steel floors and Spartan Easy Loaders. The doors carried a steel plate with SEI initials, like most specially-equipped WP boxcars. One survives at the Portola Railroad Museum as MW 0209. A photo can be seen at https://www.wplives.com/archives/mow/nonrevenue/MW0209.php .
