Thanks for the reply.

Whatever the chalk marks are for, one thing is for sure, they are an interesting detail.

Bill,

Chalkmarks, as often noted here, are usually indecipherable as to meaning. They belonged to local crews.

Thanks Bob,

Re the cord wood photo: Are the chalk marks on the truck bolster ends some data regarding lubrication? Or perhaps something else?

Re the tank car photo:  Nice billboard in the background advertising the Portland Rose
