has a couple of interesting aspects.
For Gordon who was asking about oil distributors, it
shows a portion of the Standard Oil distributor's
facility.
Directly behind the loco are at least two (the
center two) wine tank cars. The dome diameter on
the fourth car indicates wine - see
The first car behind the tender looks to be a three dome car converted from a single dome car. Notice the large center dome and the two smaller domes flanking that.

The second car appears to be the same.

The third card is a six dome wine car.

The fourth car appears to be a single dome car of the same kinship as the first two cars.
