Definitely unusual. It's a 3-compartment conversion of what was originally a single-dome Type V frameless tank car. Also appears to be lacking any safety valves for the domes.

Actually, if you have a closer look you'll notice a hatch on the top of the tank body at the near end.  It turns out that UTLX 81014 is a tank car that has had a second conversion, this time to an AAR type "LT", which is a tank style car for handling dry commodities.  That's why there are no safety valves on the domes.
