Looks like the era of the PRR X-29s and look alikes on other roads--1920s.

PRR, B&O and others owned X29's.

Pennsy owned around 35000 X29's, which were built between 1924-1934.

If you can't make out a BLT date from all the layers of paint, rust, and corrosion, the trucks might give an indication. While they could have been replacement trucks put on at a later date, it would narrow down the date quite a bit.

Yes,
try looking at the truck frame as you might find the road name initials
plus the year it might have been built.

Yes, could be, as they had cars like this.
