Vintage B&O Railroad “Wreck Train” Toolbox Garrett Indiana
Rare B&O Railroad Wreck Train Box
Here is a really cool historical transportation and railroad item that is truly hard to find. As a matter of fact this is the only one I have ever seen in real life or online that came off of the Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad. It is a rather large tool chest with 3 removable sections. It is painted with the B&O Brand and says “Wreck Train” Garrett Ind. It even ha a very neat lid handle that is brass and has the B&O mark on it as well.

Nice Vintage light up Roanoke VA Garst Bros. Dairy clock
These clocks use to bring $600-$800 but with so many of them in the area (Roanoke VA), most of the main collectors already have one and the price has been dropping over the past 5-6 years. You can pick them up for about $200-$300 and even less from average people that have them in garages and basements. I saw one sell at a yard sale for $50 this past summer (which was a great deal!).

RARE 1929 VGN RYCo Virginian Railroad Switch Lock Value
Virginian (VGN) RYco Railroad Switch Lock
Here is a find example of a VGN Railroad (Virginian) lock that we uncovered in a local estate. This lock is in GOOD condition from 1929 and complete with the original chain, switch plate cover, and VGN marked slaymaker lock switch key. The key alone is worth $60-$100 depending on the market. These VGN locks are worth $600-$1200 depending on the market you sell in and the condition and particulars of your lock. The lock you see photographed was sold for $655 for a fast sale, however it could have sold for $800 easily if more time was invested in the sale. This lock sold within 5 minutes of being listed online.
