I wonder if they might be "Birmingham Southern." They clearly look like classic battleship gondolas to me, especially with the six-wheel trucks.

I just came across this link which seems to show battleship gondolas
in service at Birmingham Steel. Are these indeed battleship gondolas,
or were they purpose built for steel service? If they are battleship
gondolas, what railroad do you think they came from?
