Car is described as a tank car, but exterior looks like a reefer.  A milk reefer perhaps?

 

A milk tank car. Note the passenger type trucks and three torched off rectangles on the near end; these are the guides for the buffer springs, the buffer has been removed. These cars typically had two tanks with a small room between them to keep the loading connections clean; the room is accessed via the reefer style doors, and we are looking at the fack side of the wall where the exterior of the car has been ripped away.
