Unusual trucks on gon in American Smelting photo

In the first American Smelting photo, from the group that Paul Krueger so kindly posted (message #171547):

https://www.loc.gov/pictures/resource/fsa.8b14180/ 

there is a gon, three cars to the right of the KCS vinegar car.  It has sheet metal trucks.  I would call them Fox, but I see that they have a longish wheelbase.

It seems odd to me that sheet metal trucks would be running at this date.  The car appears to be Union Pacific.  To me.

I wonder at the thoughts in this group on the matter.
