    Did PE own any freight cars, I think they owned a fleet of single sheathed boxcars, but am not sure. Did they own anything else? Does anyone make models, or supply decals? Thanks.

    I have a very old Roundhouse model of a PE single-sheathed boxcar. No idea if it's correct or not. (Old= bought in early 70s or before.)

    Pacific Electric had an extensive fleet of freight cars--they did a lot of freight business, especially after being acquired by Southern Pacific. I think most of their freight fleet was probably SP equipment, but they also had PE-lettered boxcars. PE made extensive use of box motors for LCL freight.

    Microscale makes lettering for Pacific Electric single sheathed boxcars. In HO, the set is
    87-911 Southern Pacific Single Sheathed Wood 40' Boxcars. In addition to SP and PE, there is lettering for T&NO, SPdeM, EP&SW, AE, and H&WT.
