Well, those are some oddballs. Double straps at one end, single on the other. The opposed safety valves on the dome are common for STC and PTC, but the underframe isn't either of them. I wonder if these are Allegheny Steel Tank Car?

Also note the small lettering on the left door, "Unlock this door from inside". I assume that means that the right-hand door could be opened from the outside first.
