How often to do see two somewhat rare freight cars coupled together?

Maybe because those two are both 'do not hump'?

That WECX car, built 1-61, is what we would now call a Schnabel car.  Was this terminology used then, or called something else in English at that time?  Schnabel = beak, as in bird.
