Description

Vintage set of commemorative bookends from the Panama Railroad consisting of an actual iron U-rail and screw spike mounted to a hardwood rail tie. One bookend has a metal plaque engraved "Original Rail & Tie - PANAMA RAILROAD - 1835-1855". The undersides are covered in faded green felt. The bookends weigh over 4.5 lbs and measure approximately 5.5" tall by 4.5" wide by 3.5" deep. They have a lot of age and are in great shape. The first Panama Railroad was completed in 1855 across the isthmus of Panama, connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. The Panama Canal which was built decades later followed that same route. This is a really cool souvenir oddity for your Panama, railroad memorabilia or bookend collection.
