Hi Bob,
 
Perhaps it is a live fish car or a live oyster transport car. I have some vague memory these were discussed on this list in the past, maybe very distant past...
 
Somehow the term “Stillwell Live Oyster car” sticks in my head.

Photo: Hopper Car At Fish Company

A circa 1907 photo from the University of Washington:

https://digitalcollections.lib.washington.edu/digital/collection/curtis/id/1489/rec/105

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit but I cannot discern the reporting marks.

Location: Chlopeck Fish Co. packing warehouse on Railroad Ave., Seattle.
