An unexpected "steam era" freight car

It might be a delivery view. The car is at the N&W Bristol yard, at the connection to the Southern Appalachia Division (there was a short gap between the former V&SW and the Southern proper after 1939). The car might be receiving a final inspection, or it could be a staged "old versus new" display.
