Notice the refrigerator car at the bottom of the photo. I'm guessing this was a temporary fix to allow the car to be kept in service with a perishable load:

      The other thing I like in this photo is the gondola load. Many modelers seem to think cars like gondolas were always full when loaded, but of course the car just carried whatever the shipper needed to send. In waybill collections, you can find lots of loads under 10,000 pounds, being carried in 50-ton cars.
