A very interesting photo.  Could be DT&I 17300.  Above Painted, it notes the Dry Lading Roof.


The other car appears to be a Rock Island Fowler type car.  Note what look like slots in the frame members

Not a great photo but what I found interesting is that the fasteners (bolts?) along the upper side appear to have had dabs of paint or sealer applied.

A stencil to the upper left of the door possibly reads “Painted”.
