"Can anyone ID the boxcar on the left?"

PRR Class X23.  The horizontal members of the truss were often (but not always) removed from cars during their service lives.
As with the related Class X25 steel boxcar, these cars were massively overbuilt - Gary Rausch showed a photo of a Class X23 boxcar with a collapsed coaling tower on top of it.  The car was in surprisingly good shape.
