In fact, in looking further, there appear to be a whole string of former 62000-63499 box cars. You can tell in part from the uniform heights, vertical brake staffs and consistent roof seams.

Furthermore it you look to the string on the left and the mangled hopper in front, that one is a 24800 series Hart convertible ballast hopper. It is identifiable by its number on the end and also by the outside clasp brakes on its trucks. You can see the cast extensions on the ends of the side frames and the outside brake hanger rigging.

Interesting photo!
