Here is a N scale freaight car with the LT WT number larger then the other two numbers, so shows that these were out there like on the tie fighter
CAPY (nominal capacity) is the intended load-carrying capacity of the car, to the nearest 1000 pounds. This is determined by the structural strength of the car's underframe and the size of the journal bearings of the car's trucks.
LD LMT (load limit) is the maximum weight of lading that can be carried by the car, to the nearest 100 pounds. This is determined by subtracting the weight of the car when empty from the total allowable gross weight given the size of the car's journal bearings. The load limit for a car is usually a bit greater than its capacity; the two figures can be equal, but capacity can never exceed load limit.
LT WT (light, or empty, weight) is the weight of the car when empty.
i don't believe that the N scale is the right size because the decals are way to small, here is a size comparison
N scale seems good to me, the HO decals are about 2x too big.

That has to be the tiniest 1138 reference.
Are those pics of the original decal sheets ? The Danger looks spot on too !
