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.
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.
