Here’s a good photo of 6889 in that group of five.
The wheel car is behind it.
What an incredibly cool car!

Looking into my 12-1930 ORER, I see that P&LE has very few flat cars - in fact, this is all I could find:
P&LE 6883-6884 30ft length 150,000 lb (2 cars total)
If I strain my eyes, and use a little imagination, I could just about get myself to say that the number on the side of the flatcar image you send reads as "6884".
The image is dated 1941 (11 years later than my ORER), but it might be as simple as it's got to be one of these 7 cars, and 6884 just might be it! If this is so, you found one member of a two-car class - wow!
