Bruce and Claus,
Focusing just on the PRR G26 (52' 6" inside) on the RIP track it has a pretty nasty load shift. It is now out of diagram and will have to have the load corrected and secured before moving. Note that the saplings on the near end of car are out of place and pulled inward the telltale sign of the shift.
These appear to be 52 foot poles of a lesser grade or utility pole grade that shifted making them appear to be of mixed length. The poles in the car in the center of the yard appear to be 72-foot pole IIRC and it is in need of idler cars.
Eventually all things merge into one and a river runs through it.
