Thanks, with Tony’s C for Colton, we have, at least, a reasonable idea for those other letters.

I'll make some nominations. Not the least bit authoritative, but based on where GATC had some type of facilities, so somewhat SWAGish.

 

L - Lawrenceville, IL

J - Jacksonville, FL

P - Portland, OR

Richard Townsend

Lincoln City, OR

I have been looking at a lot of Swift reefer pictures recently, partially for reweight dates and locations.  I have seen a number of cars with

 

EC

 

which makes good sense as East Chicago, Inidana.  A main plant location

 

But I also see

 

L

J

C

P

 

Multiple times in the same set of stencils

 

Can anyone point to locations to match these reweigh locations, probably remote shop sites for GATC.  I note that in the ORER’s it lists East Chicago, Union Stock Yards (Chicago) and Kansas City as home points for refrigerator cars.

 

Thanks a bunch.
