Railroad Switch, Marked Bethlehem [Steel?] .... Info about this would be great!!!! :D ... I know switch locks fit on it but what was it for, are there other parts???

The railroad piece with Bethlehem steel marked on it is a switch/point bar latch, there are two of these mounted about 1 foot apart facing the track. To change the direction of the tracks one would unlock the latch, throw the lever 180 degrees into the opposite latch and lock it.

Dayum! What a nice haul :). I picked up an Abloy 656 recently too, it's a cool lock :). Oh! I saw that Bramah as well, nice stuff :D.

Man... That S&G 844... I'm seriously drooling. What I wouldn't give! :D

Great stuff, as always :)

Re: MacGnG's Lock Collection

Hey Mac, I found a random ManolexDeadbolt2.jpg picture in the wrong place. it's near the top of the post on page 16 under Sargent Signature lock. LOL.
it's just an extra, it is also down below with the others as it should be.
