I can easily imagine the uses Pullman could have for boxcars.
First, samples to send around for railroads to examine.
Secondly, resupplying the many repair and service points of the Pullman system 
all over the country.  Light bulbs, brake shoes, generator belts, toilet paper, and 
certainly jugs of that special Pullman disinfectant with the special aroma. 
Everything from air conditioning fans to tickets had to be on hand everywhere 
Pullman went.  Ship it by rail was the sensible way to go.
