I believe they just looked for a photo of any stock car to stick in the article. I think the car is in a scrap line. It certainly would be refused for loading.

Folks

I am curious about that as well. The photo appears to have been taken on a RIP track or storage track (note the passenger car coupled behind). While that particular board is high enough up that it shouldn't pose a problem, I wouldn't be surprised if it were enough for an interchaning railroad to refuse interchange.
