I'm not exactly sure what this load is, perhaps part of a press for forming seamless pipe fittings, which are formed from seamless pipe.  It's probably on its side for shipment.  Seamless pipe fittings would usually be stacked and banded on a pallet, if small enough, and probably shipped in boxcars.  I agree this is probably a well hole flatcar.
