Let’s explore railroad switch locks. These specialized locks were once used to secure railroad switches, and are today prized by collectors and museum curators alike for their interesting shapes, markings and makers.

Join Colorado Railroad Museum Curator of Collections & Exhibits, Stephanie Gilmore, to explore “Small Wonders” from the Museum’s collection as part of the new “Still Working On The Railroad” initiative. Each segment will focus on different items from the Colorado Railroad Museum’s collection.
