This is a harder to find from the B&O Railroad. It is stamped B&O RT on one side of the bow. On the other side is stamped the number F5477 and the diamond logo of the FS Hardware Company.
This key shows little or no use, but it is identical to one shown in "Locks & Keys Baltimore and Ohio Railroad" (Robinson). The interesting bit cut is a "lollipop" straight up and down.
This key would have been used with its lock to secure a section of track for a work crew to safely make repairs.
