According to a 1983 equipment tabulation book I have, the W-55 (the one that didn't want to be saved) was a MoW tool car.

My bet is that they were being scrapped and the car that evidently wanted to be rescued was marked for preservation. This, being 1983 new york, didn't go as planned and there was an arson. It took place there, you can see burnt out surroundings.
