Reporting Mark
A REPORTING MARK is an alphabetic code of one to four letters used to identify owners or lessees of rolling stock and other equipment used on certain railroad networks. In North America the mark, which consists of an alphabetic code of one to four letters, is stenciled on each piece of equipment, along with a one- to six-digit number. This information is used to uniquely identify every such rail car or locomotive, thus allowing it to be tracked by the railroad they are traveling over, which shares the information with other railroads and customers

Locomotive
A LOCOMOTIVE or ENGINE is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a train . A locomotive has no payload capacity of its own, and its sole purpose is to move the train along the tracks. In contrast, some trains have self-propelled payload-carrying vehicles. These are not normally considered locomotives, and may be referred to as multiple units , motor coaches or railcars . The use of these self-propelled vehicles is increasingly common for passenger trains , but rare for freight (see CargoSprinter ). Vehicles which provide motive power to haul an unpowered train, but are not generally considered locomotives because they have payload space or are rarely detached from their trains, are known as power cars . Traditionally, locomotives pulled trains from the front
