Greetings, 

Both of these reefers were shopped and apparently repainted in July 1955, note the AX-AFI in the upper left corner.  

I suspect that one of the ex-PRR R 7 class is the next car to the left, and it also appears to be recently repainted based on condition.

The reweigh date is "AX 7-55" also, and since the picture was apparently taken on 7/23/55, these two were probably fresh from the shop when they got wrecked.
