I started looking at trains a 4 year old living one long block from the SP Chandler (Burbank) branch in the very early 1950's. (Off topic, but I even saw a very strange, for a 4 year old, locomotive running on it. It was running backwards and had the tender behind the smoke box door... A cab forward, but I did not know of them!)
I do not remember seeing a single Pennsy car until I move closer to Taylor yard, in the late 50's.
In my new home, I could see, and with binoculars examine, the SP Main Line in Glendale, CA, and it was on that line that I saw my first Pennsy car (a "small" box car).
To keep this steam era and freight car related, in my HO model fleet, I have exactly 1 (one) Pennsy box car.
I model the SP in the transition era, and I do not plan on acquiring any more Pennsy cars.
