TACOMA RAILWAY & POWER COMPANY

Item # 11973

Turn of the century steel Bohannon switch lock. This lock is in beautiful original condition and is stamped with the hallmark on the front of the shackle and TRy&PCo on the reverse. This early street car and freight hauler in Tacoma started business in 1888 and lasted until the summer of 1938. Few items remain from this Pacific Northwest road. This lock and worn but matching key are one of the few lock and key sets left around to enjoy.

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.

HARDWICK & WOODBURY RAILROAD

Item # 11958

Although there are several H&W RR's none seem more likely than this unlikely road to have purchased this lock in the 1890's when it opened up its approximately 10 mile operation in the state of Vermont. This lock manufactured by Sherburne & Co in Boston is hallmarked on the front of the shackle and marked neatly H&WRR on the back. The lock is in fine working condition and comes with a generic key that operates it. If you have always had that matching key, now is your chance to own maybe the only other piece of hardware from this line that has found its way into the collecting world.

CHICAGO ROCK ISLAND & PACIFIC RAILROAD

Item # 11957

CRI&PRR deeply stamped in the shackle of this pre-1890 Union Brass manufactured switch lock. Very nice patina and great functioning lock. Sometime in its distant past this lock received a shop repair that has since blended into the character of this lock. The rivet heads have been peened and the clevis hinge pin has been replaced with an iron post. Repairs do affect value, however they are minimized to the greatest extent possible when performed as well and as early in the history of the lock as this one.
The key in this matching set is a spectacular matching Union Brass 80's vintage key that operates the lock perfectly. Great set.

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.

NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILWAY

Item # 11897

Northern Pacific cast early version stair step heart shape brass switch lock. This is the way we like to find them! Rich dark brown patina covers this lock and before you start thinking the paint is a eyesore, that paint is original NP! 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!

OREGON RAILROAD & NAVIGATION CO.

Item # 11865

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. Most railroaders knocked them off the first chance they got because they'd tend to freeze in place in the wintertime. Nice lock from the higher numbered CS series range.

WELLS FARGO & CO EXPRESS

Item # 11870

WF&Co cast into the dust cover on this cast iron/steel treasure box lock. The lock is stamped JHW Climax on the shackle and is in beautiful working order and outstanding overall condition with nice patina. Small hole in the left lobe for the wire and lead seal. The lock comes with original chain and clevis. Great addition to the Express collection. The key that is present is a throw-in because someone repurposed a T&PRy or MoPac key to look like a WF key however, not original.

OREGON CALIFORNIA & EASTERN RAILROAD

Item # 11866

OC&ERR stamped on the dust cover of this Yale brass body lock with steel shackle. This Oregon lumber hauler out of Klamath Falls had approximately 40 miles of track in one of the most desolate areas in Oregon. You can't just make a wrong turn and end up in OC&E territory. This lock is one of the more difficult Oregon locks to find. An interesting line with great lumber history.

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.
