Reporting mark standard practices

An AAR reporting mark is a sequence of two to four letters that uniquely identifies the owner of a piece of railroad rolling stock. The ampersand symbol (&) is not considered part of the reporting mark. When a new reporting mark is created, its first letter is selected to be the same as the first letter of the applying company's name; the remaining letters in a reporting mark are generally derived from the applying company's initials. For example, the reporting marks for which Union Pacific Railroad (UP) applied all begin with the letter U. As companies are merged, the companies' reporting marks are normally transferred to the resultant companies along with the original companies' trademarks and logos. The reporting marks that were assigned to Chicago and North Western Railway (CNW), for example, are now assigned to UP which purchased CNW in the 1990s.
