"In the image linked below, I can see a partial view of a double sheathed boxcar with a herald. Reading it as well as I can, it seems to be proclaiming

CH&D&PM

CH&D = Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton.  PM = Pere Marquette, which the CH&D controlled 1904-1912.  The CH&D was eventually acquired by the B&O in 1917.
