    Hello All! Glad to be here! Im looking for some info on these 3 locks. In order left to right.

    The one key you have will fit all three locks as SAL type key was retained when the SAL & ACL merged. The ACL key is straight, no crook. First lock is the oldest, 2nd lock is newer, last lock is the newest. There were also some locks make by Lang with the logo stamped on the lock cover in a diamond shape with LANG in block lettere stamped inside the diamond. Been working for CSX since the SCL days of 1973 and have not seen another "Bicentennial" lock such as the one in your possession. Locks with keys always fetch more than lock itself, but in my estimation the locks would go in a range from $25 - $50, it is a large property and those locks were common, especially in the south. Of course, if you took the locks out west, they might get you more $$$, good luck.

    Hi,
