In my parts stashI have a few laser kit packages of wooden runningboards for Intermountain PS-1 box cars. Were any PS 1 box cars delivered with wooden running boards? 

Brian,
No, all were steel. The earliest PS-1 box cars built starting in 6-47 (LV 62000-62499) came with Apex Tri-lok running boards & brake steps. In addition to Apex that had widespread use on PS-1s, other types included U.S. Gypsum, Morton, Kerrigan, & Blaw-Knox.
