"I wonder if all of those crates will fit in the one car?"

From the looks of it, no. However, note that there are TWO automobile
boxcars in the photo - the WAB car is most likely a 21250-series 1-1/2
door DS automobile boxcar. The radial roof is a key spotting feature
differentiating this car from a USRA DS boxcar.
