Redwood pipe was used in the early years of the 20th century but the ATSF photo appears to
be from at least the 1940's if not later.

Here is a 1908 photo - https://www.sewerhistory.org/images/bm/bmc2/1908_bmc202.jpg

The use of magnificent old growth redwood for sewer pipes just makes me ill to think about. :-(

They look like sections of redwood pipe to me. They were common in California back in the days before they switched to concrete pipe, for water transmission.

Here's an enlargement of 2 of the mystery load cars. Details aren't clear enough to tell what kind of loads these are, but there's 2 per car.
