I was simply listing the assigned reporting marks. If you note there is no termination date for the DS&A and the DSS&A unlike the DSA which terminated twice. And from photographic evidence the DSS&A was used before it was officially assigned. As always photographs are the best source for a particular car.

Rich, have you found a single photo of a freight car marked DSA?
Web sites are not that useful if they simply regurgitate what is
found in the ORER -- photos are the best reference.
As Dennis pointed out, the Canadian Pacific is wrapped up in the
history of Soo Line and DSS&A (and Jim Hill of the GN too, if you
dig into the history). Corporate identity is one thing not always
directly reflected on the rolling stock.
Duluth South Shore & Atlantic reporting marks changed over time. According tothe NRHS web site
1966 and post 1966
