Thanks for the correction.

I was unaware of either of these SOU car types.

Those are conventional wood-frame hoppers, not Seley composite cars. The closely-spaced vertical wood posts and the horizontal truss rod in the side above the "Southern" lettering are typical of late pre-steel hoppers.

The car to the left is one of Southern's handful of 1905 Common Design hoppers (possibly 285027 according to the chalk mark), SOU 285000-285149 (ex CNO&TP 19250-19399) or SOU 321000-321599 (ex AGS 14000-14599).
