Do you know the era of the record?
A good source of reporting mark information, including private marks, is http://www.nakina.net/other/report/report.html
Here is what I am seeing/interpreting. Some of this is guess work.
CGW – Chicago Great Western with company materials
LPT = Live Poultry Transit, poultry car, appears to be empty (the number fits)
MRLX = Morris & Co (a meat packer purchased by Armour in the 20s) PHP is packing house products
MRTX is Marx Hide & Tallow Co.
MRX, MRRX, MRUX are Morrell = meat reefer
MRRX is also Mather Refrigerator Express
A 18528 contains company stores?
CMStP = Milwaukee with shingles
CBQ 113493 contains company goods
A 35502 sent to work outfit, EOF could be initials of man in charge
TIDX = Tide Water Oil Co, later Getty Oil.
GF = Georgia & Florida, later Central of Georgia, then Southern, then Norfolk Southern
GT = Grand Trunk? Flat
MLT = Morgan’s Louisiana & Texas
P&P = Peoria and Pekin Union
GC = Graham County
KOTX is Kanotex Refining. Did the conductor reverse some letters?

Subject: [RealSTMFC] Deciphering a Conductor's record
I have been transcribing a conductor’s record. There are a few things I have not figured out, especially his RR IDs. Please look and see if you can offer any suggestions.
