I wonder if it might have sometimes been that, faced with a large high value shipment like this power plant machinery that the RR might overhaul and paint cars just for that shipment,rather than just grab the first car off the yard track. This would account for the clean appearance of many of the cars in this set of pictures- if they did do this, it would be just the sort of practice that would die off in the Depression and war years
