This car was the companion to the matching number 1690 passenger car, and differs in being "open" at one end, terminating in an observation platform with gold-coloured safety railings.
This example has a yellow back wall to the observation platform, which is reckoned to be a variation based on leftover stock parts from the yellow-and-blue version that was produced at Irvington the previous year.
