I am glad to see it isn't only documentary producers who
make mistakes :-)

These most likely hauled cement, however sometimes covered
hoppers in this era also hauled carbon black.

Unlikely Bill, that a cement car would carry carbon black unless they
wanted to pour a very dark grey (or gray) concrete. Carbon black was
shipped in covered hoppers, but they were dedicated cars, larger than the
1790 and 1958 cu ft cars used for cement, etc, and used for no other
purpose.
