The NYC boxcar bears a KC 5-57 weigh location and date stencil near the weigh data. Near the end of the bottom door track is the BLT 9-56 stencil. Additionally, the large shadow keystone emblem on the Pennsy boxcar came into use in 1954.
That narrows the timeframe a bit.

Can't help myself. The photo's date is between 1934 and 1969,. Well, that narrows it down. Looking at the Pennsy boxcar, I'd say, 1954 or later was a good guess.
