Thanks for the nice photo.

I wonder if CN was still handling livestock at the time. Perhaps the car was also being used for commodities which could handle some exposure to the weather (e,g. bricks).

I would not think a stock car would have the structural strength for something as dense as bricks but possibly some other commodity on the lighter side that was weather tolerant
