It even doesn't have coupler lift bars and brake hoses -> likely NO working brake at all!
It seems that it just has been shoved back and forth on only a few hundred feet at the most.

Many greetings

Look at the coupler...A makeshift "link and pin" arrangement. You can see the bar or rod going to the other car. Neat.

I would agree it's in captive service.

Am I missing them, or does that car not have airbrakes? That would
definitely put it in captive/non-interchange service.

Undated. No ownership indicated on the flatcar.

Perhaps in captive service at the port?
