PENINSULAR RAILWAY of CALIFORNIA

Item # 12480

Peninsular Railway Co. cast brass switch lock. P. RY. CO. cast down the back panel as well as CS-13 and SWITCH also cast. With track extending from San Jose to the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto, and lines extending to Los Gatos and Saratoga, it was one of the shortest bay area interurbans. No doubt that this is one of the hardest California cast locks to find and to our knowledge is unique and the only surviving example from this Silicon Valley juice line. Several references of the period refer to this road as both the Peninsular Railway and the Peninsular Electric Railway and we have both examples of this CS-13 switch lock available. Truly a once in a lifetime find from what has become the internet technology capital of the world.

PRICE: ON HOLD, Please inquire.

PENINSULAR ELECTRIC RAILWAY

Item # 12479

Looking at this lock, most would conclude this is Pacific Electric Railway, however the true roots of this relic reside about 350 miles North. The Peninsular Railway of California started operations under Southern Pacific control in 1908 with track being built mainly from Palo Alto to San Jose. This road was never in competition with or under contract with its southern counterpart the Pacific Electric. The lock carries the CS-13 designation and also the keying of the Peninsular Railway. Several references of the period refer to this road as both the Peninsular Railway and the Peninsular Electric Railway. True Pacific Electric locks are cast CS-10 with the standard Pacific Electric keying, making this one of the rarest California cast switch locks in existence.

PACIFIC ELECTRIC RAILWAY

Item # 12478

Not a common steel lock to find at all. This Adlake pressed body steel lock is marked PERY on the back and CS-48 on the shackle. Not sure what the CS-48 designation was, but it sure is an oddball in the CS series and hard to find for the Pacific Electric or the CS series collector.

UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD

Item # 12477

Before the Common Standard series, the Union Pacific purchased a limited number of roadway and bridge department locks from the Slaymaker lock company. This is one of the few survivors. Nicely cast all over the back Union Pacific Roadway & Bridge Department and hallmarked Slaymaker on the shackle, this lock is in great condition. It however appears to have a sticky lever system inside as it does not function with a normal R&B key. Still the added rarity makes this worth the asking price.

PRICE: $285.00

SOUTHERN PACIFIC COMPANY

Item # 12476

One of the more common locks in the CS series is this SO. PACIFIC CO. CS-4 Switch lock. However the condition of this lock makes it most uncommon. Just a crisp and undamaged casting in fine detail makes this lock a cut above most all other CS-4's on the market. A&W hex on the dust cover and fully functioning, this lock is a top notch specimen for a common grade price.

OREGON RAILWAY & NAVIGATION COMPANY

Item # 12475

This Pre-1900 cast lock is cast UNION PACIFIC on the back, but stamped OR&N S on the front of the shackle and keyed for the OR&NCo's standard switch keying. As with many of Union Pacific's wholly owned subsidiaries, the locks carried the parent company name but retained the former's keying. Gorgeous patina and the lock functions nicely with an OR&N switch cut key. Great piece of Pacific Northwest history.

UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD

Item # 12473

Probably the most common lock in the CS series is this Union Pacific Adlake version CS-1 switch lock, but check out the condition on this one. Its nothing short of amazingly perfect. Just a couple of grazing dings on the edges. The lettering on the back is perfect. For a common lock, they don't get better than this one and you can own it for the same price as just a common beat up version.

Both are straight down bits, but different size barrels. An interesting version of this lock for sure.
