Can't make out the lettering at the far end of the car, but per the reporting marks list from pwrr.org, CS should be Colorado Southern.  A close possibility may be:

CSCD	   CASCADE & COLUMBIA RIVER RAILROAD CO.

The only other close marks (the first 3 letters same) per that list is CSCX which would be an obvious difference.  The shape of letters D and O in the font used would be partly similar but still should be different enough to distinguish.  Thoughts?

A photo from University of Utah Library:

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit.

I don't think this is a Colorado & Southern Railway gondola as the reporting marks are suspect.
