Click and scroll on the photo to enlarge it.

Only a partial view and only fair quality.

According to Ian Cranstone’s list, the NBCX reporting mark was assigned to the National Butter Co. of Iowa (American Refrigerator Transit Co.) as of 1935 and the National Car Company from 1943 to 1947.

My January 1945 Equipment Register contains no reference to NBCX.

Folks also may want to note the partial view of NYC gondola 632153.
