Tis' factual. I have a whole B&O drawing devoted to these circled
letters and their meaning.

Circle T means clean and fit for LCL service.

What I now find interesting is I would observe many class M-26 boxcars
in the mid-1960s recently shopped at Washington Indiana Shops stenciled
with the circle T. Indirectly it implies that the original roofs on
these B&O cars remained water tight contrary to the experiences on other
railroads. Many cars would have an old inspection card noting they were
suitable for class A loading.
