We thought this was a common signal lock when we first saw it, but it is not! From the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh Railway, it is clearly marked ENGINEERING DEPT. It was made for the railroad by the Yale Lock Company of Connecticut.

The BR&P operated between 1885 and 1932 in western New York state and neighboring Pennsylania, so this is a good early one that is missing from many collections.

This lock comes with a professional locksmith-made replacement key (it works well but is not original).

CONDITION is excellent, with the usual expected surface bumps and dings documenting use and wear. PLEASE NOTE -- It is just a bit sticky working, and requires a nudge on the shackle when you turn the key to open it, but it opens readily and closes firmly shut.
