OREGON RAILWAY & NAVIGATION

Item # 12027

As part of the Union Pacific System the Oregon Railway & Navigation Company was for some reason supplied with locks which were cast Union Pacific on the back, but keyed for the original OR&N and stamped OR&N on the shackles. Go figure. Maybe one of Herriman's early attempts at standardization. None the less, this seldom seen version has all the characteristics of a typical OR&N lock, except it is cast Union Pacific on the back. Another peculiarity is the marking "OR&N RR" on the front, probably to designate RR from the Navigation portion of the business or simply marked as RR by someone who didn't know any better. The lock is also stamped SWITCH on the back of the shackle. Just a beautiful rich dark brown patina overall. Wonderful condition and perfect operation. Very hard to find version.

CHICAGO MILWAUKEE St. PAUL & PACIFIC RAILROAD

Item # 12023

This brass bodied signal lock is a really tough one to find and is the only cast letter lock for the Milwaukee road made after the &P was added in 1927. This particular lock is in excellent condition and still wears some of its signal case's silver paint. The keys are as tough as this lock is to find so don't miss out on this half of the set.

VIRGINIA & TRUCKEE RAILROAD

Item # 11972

Union Brass made this nice 1880's vintage brass switch lock for the Virginia & Truckee Railroad. Nicely hallmarked on the dust cover and deeply stamped on the shackle V&TRR. This lock body has never been opened and repaired like many found today. The mechanicals in the lock are excellent. The shackle however can use some help. It functions although has a couple of cracks from some seriously rough treatment in service. When it succumbed to the punishment and opened, the end of the shackle broke off and has been not so neatly repaired. The lock functions and the repair cannot be seen in the display condition however if someone were to do this lock the justice it deserves, it should be re-repaired correctly and would then fully realize its potential. Even so, this historic western artifact is from one of the most sought after roads in the western US and will still be one of the centers of attention in any western display.

SAN PEDRO LOS ANGELES & SALT LAKE RAILROAD

Item # 11956

Interesting and rare example of a complete lock and key set from the SPLA&SL. The lock is shackle stamped SPLA&SLRR in the factory Fraim stamping. On the reverse WS for Water Service is stamped, but also in the panel ghost lettering from the same mold used to cast regular switch locks for the Terre Haute & Indianapolis Railroad! The lock was not repurposed but rather shared an identical body casting pattern with the TH&I lock so the factory reused the mold and temporarily altered the pattern to fill the lettering. An interesting piece. The key is a beautiful and seldom offered key that matches the lock and operates it well. Very difficult set to find with not many of either half left in existence.

Item # 11897

Northern Pacific cast early version stair step heart shape brass switch lock. This is the way we like to find them!

It is the lighter brown shade found on the upper portions of wayside buildings and depots. The lock comes with strong mechanical springs, clevis, chain and S hook. What a beautiful survivor with some added historical color!

This small tumbler style multi-purpose lock is all brass and in excellent condition with spring in the hasp and only missing the swing out dust cover from the bottom of the lock.

LOUISVILLE & INTERURBAN RAILROAD

Item # 10470

L&IRR brass locks show up from time to time, but this is the first cast raised letter L&IRRCo lock we've seen. This lock is very much the same design as the L&NRR cast locks however, it has a square shackle! All springs are strong and the hasp has good tension in it. We don't have a key to operate but will stand behind it with 100% money back guarantee if it does not work. This is certainly one of the nicest locks from this road that exists and is ready to display.
