This is a very nice old Boston & Maine Railroad switch key that was made by Wilson Bohannan. It is in wonderful collector condition and would be a terrific addition to any New England railway padlock or key collection.
B&MRR is strongly stamped in block letters on one side of the bow. On the other side is stamped serial number 31256 and the letter S for switch. There is no maker mark, but the shape of the key with the sloping "shoulders" where the bow meets the barrel are the distinct shape made by Bohannan in their Brooklyn New York foundry.
This key displays beautifully with its standout front marking and wonderful rich golden color. Its bit and barrel ends are just nicely rounded. There is no metal damage.
Every New England railway key collection should include a few from the B&M.
