  1. Nice! Regarding your CP Rail lock and key, what you actually have there is a vintage Conrail lock ‘CR’ and the matching key is the same type used by the New York Central RR prior to the formation of Conrail. These were used on the locomotive repair tracks. Steve B.

    • That is really good to know! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with me. I’m s huge railfan, and if I had the money, I’d would buy my own locomotive and enough property to build a full scale figure eight track. Thanks again, Steve!
