consider the lovely mail and express train shown here

Hi List Members,
I ask you all to consider the lovely mail and express train shown here. I am especially interested in the second and third cars of the consist, which look to be steam era freight cars used in express service, possibly with passenger appliances.
Some ancillary information on the image is availabel at the link below.
The first car is a PRR class B60b baggage car riding on class 2D-P3 trucks.
Any thought on the second car - appears to be single sheathed 40 foot construction?
Furthermore, any thoughts on the third car - appears to be not far from a conventional 40ft freight reefer?
The fourth car is likely a PRR class X29 in express service.
The remainder of the train appears to be a BM70k mail baggage combine, another B60b, and a P70 coach.
Input on what the the second and third car might be is welcome.
