OK fellow railcar nutz...here's the "ultimate" railcar for your perusal.
She's a 1926 Rolls Royce built by the Mayo Lumber Co. and later used on the Victoria Lumber & Manufacturing Railroad.





If you gots the bucks (or a suitable RR model) here's what you need.
From the Sandy Macham Collection/Tall Timber Short Lines #89.
As the caption from this photo reads- "Not all speeders had to be uncomfortable!"...

One of the cars of Pacific Electrics isolated narrow gauge operation on Mt Lowe.

I would guess this is a extreme variant of an traditional "California Car",
which used to have a closed center section,
and two open sided sections back and forth of it.

For the Mount Lowe operation they seem to have decided,
on large completely open end platforms instead,
to allow for unobstructed view of the scenery.

The other car I remember was a large open bench double trucker.
So maybe the small one was also intended for transporting staff,
to Alpine Tavern in bad weather.

That Pacific Electric thing from Mount Lowe is interesting.
 
Either of y'all know what it used for current collection?

And after asking here,
off to play in Google for a couple minutes,
to see if I can find out on my own.

Have a book here about some of the PE,
but it I do not recall it mentioning the narrow gauge operation.
