I am a former railroader. Autoracks are about the most complicated rolling stock that there is when comes to the names and numbers on the side. TTX stands for Trailer Train, which is the manufacturer. ETTX is the reporting initial for any tri-level autorack. TTGX are for bi-level cars. Then the number is just the serial number of the car. Most autoracks have two owners. TTX actually owns just the frame. The RR will own the actually autorack part. That is why you see TTX on the yellow frame, but you see BNSF, or UNION PACIFIC on the top part. Some railroads own the whole car so you won't see TTX or ETTX on it.
