What is the origin of the PJ class coaches?  Any good ideas for modeling them?

Early 1950's photo of the Pocahontas in Petersburg, VA with the Washington coach on the rear. It is a class Pj.  Ahead of the coach is the Chicago-Norfolk sleeper and heavyweight 10section-lounge car.  Several years ago there was anticle in The Arrow on the short run trains which connected N&W to Richmond.  The run was on ACL tracks but N&W power to Richmond.  The N&W locomotives assigned to this were equiped with ACL automatic train control apparatus.

I have a duplicate slide of a K2 pulling a train on ACL.  There is a Pm coach in the consist which I think is the Washington coach.
