Yes, all 5 are kitchen cars. Since they appear to be in original paint, I suspect this is a move to position them in storage. The cars sold to railroads were generally sold through an intermediary. In addition, it appears that, while the D&RGW did get ex-troop cars, these were troop sleepers and not kitchens.
