It becomes more complicated because of the 1947 merger into the C&O. First many of the 85000-series cars became 55XXX-series PM single-door box cars. Then for some reason these cars didn't appear to get C&O reporting marks. Other series seems to have picked up the C&O 255XXX series numbers.

I have the excellent book on PM freight cars which has plenty ofFrank, I have a print from Bob's Photo Service of PM 84521, renumbered
after it got six foot corrugated steel single doors. The photo was
taken at Ft. Bragg, NC in Jan., 1952 by Col. Chet McCoid. I also have
a print of the photo of PM 85908 which appeared in the PM box car book.
Having been photographed at Los Angeles in 1941 by a 14-year-old Bob
McVay with a Brownie box camera, it's not a superb photo but could be
improved with some fiddling in Photoshop. I'll be happy to scan both
of these for you if you wish.
