What you are looking at in that particular picture are box cars at Muehlstein's Scrap Rubber facility.
You can see piles of scrap tires at the edge of the siding also. In the distance is Renner's Chimney used for boiling wört.
The AC&Y had a siding that served both Muehlstein and Geo J. Renner Brewery. I am working on an article for the AC&Y News about this siding. I am attaching some Sanborn maps that I put together that show it.
Today the siding is gone Google Earth/Maps shows the scar that it left. If you go down there, you will see a tire retaining wall, it's the only remnant of Muehlstein's. Renner's has been re-purposed and is mostly still intact.
