The TMX reporting mark has a note in the 1953 ORER that says “See Mars Incorporated and Union Refrigerator Transit Lines, a Division of General American Transportation Corp”.  The TMX listing under URT notes that these cars are to be returned to the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific RR”, which is also interesting.
The "Mars Incorporated" is a reference to the Mars Candy Co., located on Chicago's far west side and served by the Milwaukee Road. The plant, which was located in a residential area, just recently closed.
