Railroad lorries

I recognize lorries of:

B&O (Baltimore and Ohio Railroad)
Bessemer (Bessemer and Lake Erie Railroad, B&LE)
PD&E (Peoria, Decatur & Evansville Railway)
CL&W (Cleveland, Lorain and Wheeling Railway).

Of these The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (reporting marks B&O, BO) is the oldest railroad in the United States and the first common carrier railroad.
The B&O lorry has an intriguing graffiti on it:
"Oma Kopa R..."?

Left from the B&O lorry there might be an undefined one.
