My guess is the steel plant is idle and the reefers are being stored on available trackage.

Photo: Reefers At A Blast Furnace (Circa 1925)
A photo from the Hagley Digital Archives:
Scroll on the photo to enlarge it.
Anyone have an educated guess as to what is going on here?
The reefers all look the same and all look new. Is their location a coincidence or would there be some reason to place these cars at a blast furnace?
