The NADX car was a 40' refrigerated box car (ex-reefer with the ice bunkers
removed). The PHPX car is a puzzlement. I can't found those reporting
marks (or anything close) in any of my ORERs. Assuming the book was
handwritten, is there any chance that the entry might actually represent
different initials?

I could not find PHPX either so I double checked the handwritten entry and
concluded PHPX is indeed the best guess as to what the 4 letters are. I've
scanned the entry and have posted it to the shared files area. The letters
P, R, and F are nearby for comparison. Lemme know what you think.
