Never heard of it.  Is one the MRR layouts?  Haven't found a prototype yet for the T&N.

If it is MRR layout reporting mark. It's TROY. You could see them on the gondolas during the Virginian Project. They also pop up from time to time on product reviews.

While searching around, I read an old post in another forum that the T&N was a now defunct branch of the MR&T.  Dated 2005.

Tried searching the archives, search function doesn't seem to be working.

I did find a picture of a HO scale C-7, lettered for the T&N, that they had a review on, not sure of the issue.

I would guess theat TROY or T&N would work?

Yes. Model Railroader's fictitious shortline interchanging with their Milwaukee Racine and Troy. I have seen locomotives but don't recall seeing any freight cars.

I can't find any evidence that verifies "TROY" or "TR."  Come to think of it I don't ever recall seeing a Troy and Northern freight car!  I purchased a 65' Milwaukee Racine and Troy mill gon.  I already have one so I thought it would be neat to give it a Troy and Northern patch.  Any additional help greatly appreciated.

I have a set of Custom Decals I traded to obtain for for the fictitious AGAMEMNON, HELEN, & TROY. The reporting marks are TROY. I was planning to just use the HELEN & TROY portion of the name.
