Kurt, The important point of Richard's post was "On cars painted or
repainted after that date, the reporting marks became UP." Odds are the cars
hadn't found there way to a paint shop yet. This was a common occurrence
consolidation of lines and mergers.

Yeah, I figured that initially, but Richard's quote was:

". . .the initials of subsidiaries OSL, OWR&N, and LA&SL were used as reporting marks until March, 1958. On cars painted or repainted after that date, the reporting marks became UP . . ."

which said to me that in April 1958 these marks were no longer valid, even though they still existed on cars until much later. What he apparently meant was that they stopped *being applied to cars* in March 1958.
