This brass lock was made for the Signal Department of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad . It comes with a replacement key, with which is works very well. The maker is Yale. We believe it is mid-century and dates from the 1930s-1950s.
This is a nice, clean lock that works extremely well. As you can see in the picture, the shackle pops completely out when opened. The key is a replacement but fits and works perfectly with this lock.
The script logo of the New Haven appears on one side panel, impressed into the metal. The brass clevis loop is free and ready for a chain.
There are shallow surface imperfections on the logoed side, probably from exposure to the elements and use. We've priced it significantly lower than a lock in better condition.
The New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, commonly known as the New Haven, was a railway that operated in northeastern United States from 1872 to 1968, dominating the region's rail traffic for the first half of the 20th century.
