    As an afterthought, I'll bet the NC Railroad Museum would love to have that key. Other than historical value, I have no idea what it would be worth. It may be worth sounding them out on.

    I collect vintage locks, most with original keys , Yale & Townsend, etc... I have 3 old ordinance locks and have always wanted more RR locks.
