Jack Mullen commented that the stacked material appears to be tanbark, a large-volume input to the tanning process.

Hi Bob and List Members,
 
The PERE MARQUETTE car looks to be a USRA ds boxcar, 81465 if I had to guess at the road number from the image.
 
No coupler on the other car loaded with tanbark - just a metal rod loop - maybe the car is simply towed around the facility?
 
The image can be seen in its native resolution at the link below...
