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.!prr&DMROTATE=0

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.
