Railroad Lock C&wmrr Chicago & West Michigan Rr Ry Union Brass Original Key:
Here is a great old railroad lock that was made by the Union Brass Mfg. Co. in Chicago and is so marked on the upper part of the spring-loaded drop, which works perfectly. The shackle is marked "C&WMRR" (Chicago & West Michigan Railroad) on the front, and "S" for switch on the back. The C&WM railroad was basically a short line road that eventually became a part of the Pere Marquette Railroad . I applied some Kroil oil to the inside of the lock because it was bone dry and needed to be lubricated. The pictures of the front of the lock show this oil. I will remove the excess oil before I ship this lock. The key that accompanies this lock is also marked C&WMRR on the front and "S" for switch on the back. The key opens this lock just fine. There is a nice older portion of chain still attached to the clevis. This is a great old heart shaped lock with its original patina and normal wear along with the original working key. A stand-out lock in every way! Buyer pays shipping. Thanks for looking!
