A second question: What is/was the information content of typical
"chalk marks"? I have seen "drop-off" locations: city, industrial
siding, etc. What other information was "chalked" on freight cars?
The carman's inspection marks. Could be the carman's initials and
date or location. Could be some sort of code or shorthand. Usually
placed over one of the trucks. Whenever a hotbox occurred one of the
first things asked was who's marks were on the car.
