The car in the photo is very interesting. It looks to me like an 1890s design, now of course downgraded to an in-plant car. Note that there is no air brake hose showing. By the 1890s most cars of this type would have had air brakes. Very likely air brakes are not used on this plant operation, and the hose has probably rotted off or was removed during repairs.
