It might well be, without numbers it's hard to tell. The second car also has hatches but they are flush to the roof; it's the extra hardware that is the clue.  Santa Fe had many thousands of stockcars of several different kinds --single and double deck, and they would only be used a few months a year moving stock. The rest of the time they would need to be employed doing something to get a decent ROI. Similar to the way the souther roads had melon cars that ran as box cars the rest of the year.
