Two more CB&Q cars are evident in the back of this photo - both are near the centre (side to side), and (counting front to back, only tracks with cars on them) on tracks 7 and 9 (I think). Both steel cars. Both have "Way of the West” slogans facing the camera, and the white Burlington Route with the main car colour (no black) background. I have the impression the further car has a galvanized roof and paint on the seem caps only. Less obvious about the nearer car - could that be a black roof?

I like the roof (and roofwalk) colors
And note the ratio of wood roofwalks (most) to steel (very few)
