That is one of the latest completed restoration projects at the museum. It's from the Conemaugh and (something) railroad out in Western PA. Sorry, I forget the name, Conemaugh (Did I even spell that right, Sorry, I'm a hard coal guy) and Pennsylvania sounds right but I could be wrong. When I was there last they had photos of the restoration. Here's a picture I took back in October.

That plow came from the Coudersport and Port Allegany Railroad that ran in McKean and Potter Counties until abandonment in 1970, rails were torn up in 1972 or '73. For more information on the plow restoration:

It looks to be a "critter," an industrial locomotive (narrow gauge?), complete with slots for different heights of non-standard couplers.
 
The plywood-covered thing appears to be a European-style freight car. Note that it has but two axles. It's covered, I'd guess, in order to preserve it prior to full restoration (note the air vents).

Are you sure it is not a bobber caboose?

I can't rule that out. However, what I take to be the coupler doesn't appear to be a knuckle-type.

Yes, the engine is on loan from the Smithsonian.
 
As for the plywood covered car, I'm very sure it is a PRR cabin car, No. 478396.

The Museum owns 3 bobber cabooses, so that's a good possibility.  Roger
