Hi Bob and List Members,
 
I do note the letter "O" to the left of the road number. Also, the presence of the heap shield on the end construction made me think C&O.
 
So I looked a little more, and the car in your link bears a strong resemblance to the C&O gon at the link below...
 
 
Metadata at the link below...
 
 
There are some deltas, but there is certainly more similarity than difference.
 
So it might be reasonable to guess that the car in your link is C&O 13133
