Bruce Smith commented:

“This is indeed a PRR MOW train. The cars are former XL boxcars converted to MOW service. This looks to be a combination of two unit trains for living quarters. This would have typically housed a larger gang working on a major project.

From left to the right the cars appear to be:

Riding car

Riding car

Sleeping car

Commissary car (?)

Kitchen/dining

Kitchen/dining

Of course, these are available from Westerfield in HO.”
