Re: freight cars being scrapped in 1947
The two SFRD Rr-19's with flat plate steel ends were made with two steel sheets and joined with a single horizontal seam. Also, those had AJAX hand brakes and the end reporting marks would be "SFRD" instead of "AT&SF". The twisted visible roof framing, the "Y" looking parts, imply this could be an older Fe- class car that hand been rebuilt.
