The tracks for each string of cars appear to be in the same gauge.

Also, by the time that the photograph was taken (1944-46), the narrow-gauge Rio Grande Western long had been merged wit the Denver & Rio Grande (to create the Denver & Rio Grande Western) and had been standard-gauged.

Circa mid-1940s.

Notice the difference in the heights of the two string of livestock cars at the top of the photo.

Maybe the shorter cars are narrow gauge?
