Thanks for that photo! I certainly agree with your statement that L&N had some of the oddest, home-built MofW equipment.
In the Morning Sun Books L&N Color Guide, Volume 2, page 87, there is a shot of this same car at Mobile, AL, in July 1968. The flat car/low side gondola portion was painted “boxcar red,” while the “steam engine” was painted black.

While looking for Bucyrus cranes on flat cars, I re-discovered the attached photo of L&N MoW flat 41839 in a pile driver outfit 5-17-70 at Atlanta. (low res version attached)
