PE Boxcar 2417

A friend sent me this photo from the Brea (CA) Museum.

Seen is Pacific Electric boxcar 2417 in Brea in 1918.

I checked Thompson's SP boxcar book and there is no PE series for this car so it doesn't fall into PE cars from SP's Huntington Common Standard or Harriman Period groups.

Michael Starkey commented that this was a forty-ton, forty-foot car built by Mt. Vernon in 1910. It was acquired from the Old Pacific Electric, where it was in the series 2072-2124.
