Thanks for posting the links to those work equipment photos.
L&N diesel sand cars nos. 40950-40953 were converted from old tenders in 1941. These cars were later renumbered to 40069-40072. Capacity was 800 cu. ft. I have attached diagrams sheets for the original numbers and later renumbering.
Perhaps the oddest L&N diesel sand car was #40073 (see diagram). This one was converted from an old tender in June 1948.
Photographs of nos. 40072 and 40073 can be seen on page 78 of the L&N Color Guide, Volume 2.

Hi List Members,
I stumbled upon some steam era work train equipment images of various types
IC (number unreadable) single sheathed boxcar with windows
L&N 40069, described as 'sand car' a bit of a mystery!
NYC car, possible tank car? Possible weed sprayer? Possibly rebuild from a steam loco tender?
