This terrific switch key is from the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. Its shape/manufacturing style dates it to the 1920s-1940s era. It's very appealing with a big heavy bit in a straight cut and a wider than usual bow.
It is stamped ACL in block letters on one side of the bow. On the other side is stamped maker mark ADLAKE with serial number 27247.
Condition is extremely nice, with beautiful color, just the right amount of use showing and no metal damage. A key with an identical cut but different maker is shown in our Knous price guide.
The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad was a former U. S. Class I railroad that operated from 1900 until 1967, when it merged with long-time rival Seaboard Air Line Railroad to form the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad. From 1900 until 1960 its headquarters were in Wilmington, North Carolina, and then from 1900-1960 in Jacksonville, Florida. The ACL served the Southeastern U.S., with a concentration of lines in Florida. Numerous named passenger trains were operated by the railroad for Florida-bound tourists, with the Atlantic Coast Line contributing significantly to Florida's economic development in the first half of the 20th century.
