Nice find.  126439 was built by American Car & Foundry, and if the car behind is 126158, it was too.  But I can't quite make out if the third digit is a 6 or an 8.  If the latter, 128158 was built by General American Car.

Promotional photo of a Hudson automobile pulling freight cars, taken in 1934.

Photo in link can be enlarged quite a bit.

This Bx-12 car was built in 1930 by the Santa Fe’s shops, location unknown.
