I don't actually need a picture, as the class type I can look up in those online Pennsy drawings. I think by that time it was a lightweight car.

Thanks for the info. With the car number I was able to cross-reference it with other sources and found out it was a D82CR, built by ACF, in case anyone else was curious. I wanted to see how close this car was to the KATO smoothside diner, also built by ACF. With some windows plugged and new ones cut in, and moving one end door to the center  you could make a decent representation of it. Need to add partial skirts, tho.
