I agree as I stated NS got use of the PRR reporting mark and CSX the NYC.  I would say the yes the equipment trusts had a lot to do with sub lettering.  One that was left out and created at the merger was CRN which was used for Southern's Carolina and North Western.  Carolina and Northwestern had used CNW and at the merger to clear the NS reporting mark Southern merged the CNW and NS and used the CRN on locomotives.

Lastly the Southern rests with the N&W as a fallen flag, all that remains is now Norfolk Southern.
