Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Circa 1960's to 1970"s switch key from the Penn Central Railroad. Quite uncommon is that the key is chrome or nickel plated! Marked PCRR with faint strike of "ADLAKE" hallmark on back. Dimensions are 2-5/16 inches long; 1-3/16 inch diameter at hilt.

It is not certain if key was plated by an individual employee for his personal use; or if it was plated as a gift or presentation piece.

The Penn Central was formed in 1966 through the consolidation of the Pennsylvania and New York Central railroads. It operated only until 1976 when Congress nationalized the Penn Central under the terms of the Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform act which folded Penn Central and five smaller lines into the Consolidated Railroad Corporation commonly known as Conrail.

Due to the relatively recent demise of the Penn Central, there are many PCRR keys in circulation. However, this is the only example of a plated key that I have personally ever seen.

Key will be shipped USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation.
