Boxcars, gondolas, flat cars...absolutely.
Other cars, maybe not. The size of the fleet would not necessarily have spread all types of cars everywhere.
I will say that as a modeler of western roads, living in the west, I have only in recent years been aware of the need for more PRR cars on my railroad. 
Having visited hundreds of model railroads in the west that reflect western railroads, the lack of PRR representation is amazing.

Re: [Non-DoD Source] [RealSTMFC] Photo: Coast Guard Boats In Gondolas

Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Bob and Group;

 

That guy to right is most certainly a PRR GR gon with stake pockets still intact, arch bar trucks, and original ends.

 

I also think there is a PRR GS gon down there.

 

The ’37 flood caused so many problems, the military was called in in several capacities, one being river management, and another search and rescue.  Maybe these boats are destined for the rivers u/s and d/s of Pittsburgh for those purposes.

The word at the upper left of the reefer appears to be “CHICAGO”, and based upon a listing in the January 1910 ORER, I think we’re likely looking at a car listed by the Chicago Refrigerator Car Co., which apparently also used the name Chicago Refrigerator Despatch – which would account for the “D” in the reporting mark – and the part letter peeking out from behind the pole and noise appears to be an “R” (the ORER does not give a reporting mark or any stencilling information for this operator). The car number in the photo is 9_55, which is also consistent with the 9000-series cars given in the ORER listing.

Anyone want to guess on the reporting marks of the reefer in back of the GT car??? My poor eyesight guesses the last letter is D which could possible be SFRD

Hi List Members,
 
1896 view of box cars, coal cars, and a tank car ay Solvay Process Co works Syracuse (Solvay) NY
 
 
Note that every boxcar has its door fully open, some have doors on both sides open.
 
Of note, the boxcar at the leftmost end of the image, above the field of flowers, appears to have two doors on each side of the car.

Bruce is certainly correct! The PRR had 227,881 freight cars service in 1942 (see attached for all railroads from the SRHA archives), no other road comes close. PRR cars would have been everywhere.

I have to wonder if the boat specs were to fit standard gons, given how snug they are in width and length.  No use building boats that you can’t ship.
