The closest car I found to the above model, after a brief search, was this Atlas Trainman ACF box. I
thought the ends, roof angle, ribs, and steps matched up pretty good.

Jeff:

So sorry to rain on your parade, but the roof of the GNWR car is not the same as on the trainman boxcar. That GNWR has a X-panel roof, while the Trainman car has diagonal panels. Count the seam ridges on both roofs to see that the GNWR car has fewer panels on account of the X-panels being much wider than the diagonal panels.

Nice effort so far though...

If you decide it's not close enough to the GNWR with the different roof, here's a couple alternate cars that you could salvage it to. These are all later ACF built cars with a different side sill. You've gone through the effort of removing the doors, so I've picked a few with different doors than the original trainman boxcar.
Alternately, you could decide to leave it as-is, or attempt to also replace the roof, which adds quite a bit of work to your project.

http://freight.railfan.ca/hs/hs6475.jpg <- ex-GBW, door matches one you removed.

Didn't find too many with doors like the ones you removed from the PC boxcars, but doors are easily swapped between cars on the prototype. You could keep them in reserve and do another car with them as well.

If anyone is interested in ACF boxcars, you can see a whole bunch here:

Yes the manufacturer is either SIECO or Evans (bought SIECO 1982) or US Railway Equipment (another Evans company) The original design is definately SIECO.

It is going together very nicely Jeff! Looking good. Are you going to be taking the placards off the doors?
