Hi Bob and List Members,
 
Great find Bob!
 
In addition to the LV boxcar, I can see the following:
 
PRR 100857 or 160857 GLa twin hopper equipped with archbar trucks and center bar lettering
 
SOU 335948 36ft ds trussrod box
 
A pair of PRR class H21a quad hoppers. These were built as class H21, then later upgraded to class H21a at which time the top chord reinforcements were likely added. Note the clamshell hopper doors
 
Enjoy!
