Eric is correct, the XAra class was created from RDG XMs cars 5000-5999 built for the P&R while under USEA control in 1919.

There’s an informative data sheet on this XAra class on the Reading Modeler site. Click on XAra for the PDF.
These were the product of a rebuild program. I think these were originally USRA single-sheathed boxcars rebuilt in 1935 for auto service. From the data sheet it seems the Reading rebuilt 100 additional cars to XAra class in 1943.
