I think I read Wilson Car Lines on the reefer next to the tender. Perhaps they are out of service and are being moved to be rebuilt. Only a guess.

Here is a picture of two refrigerator cars with complete battens covering their doors.  I cannot make out the car lettering but why would refrigerator cars require battens to seal their doors?  It eliminates any testing of car temperature.   Please note that these cars are followed by a refeer with 4 hinges.
