Ah, overexposure of the one clean car while the rest of the image is right.  Film and eyes playing tricks on my mind.  Thanks for confirming the orange tone that "looked" yellow to me.

I pulled the image into my art software and sampled that reefer.  The pixels are all a lighter version of orange.  When I adjust the tone by darkening it by 15% the result is ~PFE orange (see attached image).

That said, I'm surprised by how "yellow" the 2nd PFE car appears, I would have expected a more orange hue.  Perhaps it faded through exposure and washings
