Hi Dennis,

    The Columbia Trust was the governmental agency set up to handle the disposition of the 
USRA built cars until they were accepted and paid for by the railroads. Even cars that had 
been accepted could be found with the "C.T." notation following the road number. Once 
financing arrangements were made, or the cars paid for, it was painted out.

My best, Don Valentine
