The ATSF's system capped the first letter of the car type and uncapped
the final letter. For instance, "Bx" designated for a boxcar; "Rr" for a
reefer; "Ga" for a Gondola, etc.. I don't know their classification for
a Covered Hopper.

I add:

Santa Fe used Ga for gondolas, open hoppers and covered hoppers
