Tony, they're what I'd describe as smoke jacks.
There's a lot of white "smoke" in the picture, coming from both the
locomotive and those pipes, whatever they are.
In that case the cars are mechanical refrigerators, or cars (probably Canadian, as they had lots of them) with underslung heaters, not bunker heaters of the kind I was describing.
