Yes, Eric, it’s distorted but mostly horizontally. It looks very wide. But look at the car in relation to the man on the platform. It’s clearly not as tall a car as the one originally referenced for this picture.

The CH&D car would become one of the B&O M-23 class by WW1. Height to running board was 13-foot, 3-inches. I suspect the camera lens has affected the car appearance.
Also, a Cincinnati, Hamilton & Detroit box car at the end of the spur, a LONG ways from home. Very short (i.e., not tall) car.
