If a standard flat car is about 9’ wide, then the boilers in the prototype photo are smaller boilers. They are more like 6’ wide.

Weight Of An Industrial Boiler?
I have an HO scale Birchfield industrial fire tube boiler to use as a flat car or gondola load. It is a 3D printed model:
This is a very large boiler. It scales out at roughly 18 feet long, 13 feet high and 8 feet wide.
This photo shows as many as two of these large boilers and two smaller ones on a fifty-ton flat car:
Out of curiosity, what would one of these larger boilers weight?
