Pinch gas is made by the railroad and is used for non electrified coach lights. Each car has a storage tank mounted underneath  which is filled before each run. Usually  you can see a gas line down the center of the roof connecting to each of the lamps.

The name was spelled correctly on the CN flat car: it's Pintsch gas -- though Lloyd's spelling captures the pronunciation perfectly.
