It was not a PRR G31, but what you said: an added PC class for rebuilt 52'6" gons with new fixed ends, after the elimination of the "LOT" system.
Yes, a G33, but I cannot tell if it is a G33 or G33B.

Your observation is correct, and I noticed it too, although the photo is pretty fuzzy when you enlarge it.
I once photographed a 52' gon in Port Jervis in the mid-1970s that was painted PC green and lettered PC. It has all the features of a NYC/Greenville standard 52'-6" drop end mill gon except for rebuild solid ends, but had a class of G31T, which seemed like a PRR class. I never heard about PRR picking up any of the Greenville gons, so maybe the class was a PC invention. Who knows? Unfortunately, I just tossed my copy of PC car diagrams during the move to Texas last week. Maybe someone out there has a copy, or someone on the PC list.
