Does anyone know what purpose they serve or what they are used for?

From what I was told  they serve as an internal materials handling car for the purpose of hauling company material for recycling. NS recycles tie plates and other track materials at its Roanoke shops. The one I saw was NS boxcar 403025MW seen here in Columbia, PA back on November 26th, 2016.

The cars appear to have kept their numbers when they were turned green.
