According to the interchange rules, a railroad's reporting marks can be 
anything it wants, up to 4 characters but it can't end in "X." Any none 
railroad company that has cars in interchange service must have a 
reporting mark that ends in "X."

CSX couldn't use just CSX as a reporting mark, since they are a 
railroad. Hence the "T" was added to the end, with the lame excuse that 
it stood for Transportation. (Bah Humbug).
