    I vote for either CLLX or CLLPX!

    For what it's worth:
    Canadian Locomotive Services CLSX

    Somehow sounds more "professional" when I say it aloud.

    Note that if those are the reporting marks you're considering, CLSX=Cargill (Salt division), and I've never seen a 5-letter reporting mark like CLLPX. I like the name, but stay with CLLX for the reporting mark.

    thanks for the input. I like the CLSX too.
    But since some onealready uses the CLSX I guess i will have to resort to the backup plan CLLX
    it would be a mouthful or an entire locomotive side to spell it out, so I will must use the short forms on the cabs
    next time i am in the hobby shop i iwll look for just letters to use as rub on decals
    guess i will require numbers too
    wondering if i should use 2 digit or go with the normal 4 digit numbering system used by the bigger companies.
    i have like 4 units right now waiting numbers and decals
    rest are in former renters names and number system
    thanks again

    Because the 1960s-designed computer system for keeping track of equipment only accepts 4-letter (or less) reporting marks.
