repair notation

The switchman’s precarious position allows the full view of the caption at the bottom left side of the single sheathed boxcar:
 
Repaired by
DS Inc
East Roch. NY
11-24-41 
 
 
While I admit that I have not been looking in that position before, this is a new caption to me.  Likely the Dispatch Shops and was this confided to NYC or did other railroads add this notation on the side of their cars?
