Here is a great lock and key set from the Central Vermont Railway which operated between 1899 and 1995.
Both were made by Adlake and they are a fine working pair.

THE KEY is brass, stamped CVRY on one side of the bow and ADLAKE on the other. It is a beautiful deepening coppery golden color, with some light "finger polish" and smoothed edges on its bit and barrel end.

THE LOCK is a steel switch lock. It is stamped CVRY on the back above a patent date that refers to the type of lock, not this particular individual one. It is in excellent working condition with lots of spring to the dust cover. The printed ADLAKE mark on the dust cover is a great display. It has surface grime and a few surface bumps and dings but nothing worse.

There are no date marks, but we are estimating this set dates from the 1940s-early 1950s. The chain attaches to the lock through holes in the body, rather than an outside clevis.

The Central Vermont Railway (reporting mark CV) was a railroad that operated in the U.S. states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont, as well as the Canadian province of Quebec. It came about from an 1899 reorganization of its immediate predecessor, the Central Vermont Railroad. The CVRY connected Montreal, Quebec, with New London, Connecticut, using a route along the shores of Lake Champlain, through the Green Mountains and along the Connecticut River valley, as well as Montreal to Boston, Massachusetts, through a connection with the Boston and Maine Railroad at White River Junction, Vermont.
