composite gons in 1949 at Commonwealth Edison Chicago area

Claus Schlund \(HGM\)

Hi List Members,
A nice trio of composite gons in 1949 at a Commonwealth Edison Chicago area coal fired power plant. I am not an expert, but they look like other IC composite gons I have seen.
I like the coal storage pile in the background.
Also, what is the piece of rolling stock up against the bumping post and coupled to the boxcar?
More info here, including inscription on back of image...
