I would say not. According to my listing of AAR reporting marks (, the LPTX mark was transferred to North American Car sometime in the July 1932-April 1938 period, and was last listed circa 1941. Although I have by no means worked my way through all ORERs, they were not listed in 1/1943.

PTCX marks appeared by January 1945, and lasted until circa 1950.
