Re: TOC reporting mark
Yes, the T&OC existed as a paper railroad (past the end of the STMFC list). Reporting marks disappeared in the 1936 system-wide NYC renumbering, then reappeared on two bay NYC hoppers sometime after April 1964 and before 1965. Under Penn Central, box cars also carried these reporting marks.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The T&OC was controlled by the Hocking Valley from 1890-1910, then the C&O was forced by the ICC to divest the T&OC in 1910 when it took control of the HV (greatly simplified version). The Lake Shore & Michigan Southern gained control of the T&OC, then in 1922 the NYC leased the T&OC. At least one boxcar appears in a Conrail paint scheme with T&OC reporting marks.

Modeling the T&OC's St. Marys branch in S scale

From what I can find online, TOC (or T&OC) was a railroad merged
into the New York Central in the 1950's. But here is a photo of a
TOC, ex-WAG single sheathed XM-1 box car in what must be the 1960's.
Is this the same TOC (Toledo & Ohio Central) that merged into NYC
or something else?
