  • 2 Vintage Victorian Railway Padlocks

    These items are Victorian Railways padlocks used by the S&C department for locking telephone and power boxes along with signal lense boxes along the permanant way. They are no longer used and all have been replaced long ago. These have been in the field for 60 or 70 years and one has been cleaned and shows what it looked like when new and the other one is as it was when removed from service. Both locks are in working order and have keys. Thank you for looking.

Collectable Railroad Hardware

The history of rail in Australia goes back to the middle of the nineteenth century, though it was not until Federation in 1901 that the idea of truly linking the country by rail came to the fore. The problem the new country faced was that the existing track came in three different gauges, so both passengers and freight had to change trains. One positive from this development is that it made possible a wide range of different railway memorabilia.

Collecting Hardware

Railway collectables run the gamut from full-size railway cars to collectable railroad tickets. While tickets are easy to store, anyone collecting railway hardware has to consider storage first and foremost. Carriages and platform seats take up a lot of space, so you can't just hang them on the wall or stick them in the corner.

Collecting Railroad Signs

One of the strongest areas of collectable railroadiana is that of collectable railroad signs. It's not surprising that signs are popular, since their design intentionally catches the eye, and they can do that just as well on your wall as they did at the station. Manufacturers made many of the best from porcelain, while others are enameled metal. Look out for condition, many of these signs spent years in the weather.

Railroad Lanterns

Lanterns are also very collectable. Used primarily for signaling on the tracks, they later became popular as retirement honours. Most lanterns featured a glass globe, but few antique globes have survived. Even without the globe, many still feature vintage metalwork and the names of the rail lines they once served.

Railway Collecting

While the different gauges may have worked to keep the states apart, the railways as a whole did more to tie the country together than anything before or since. They are a vital part of Australian transport history, and collectable railroad books provide you with a perfect window into the times. They really are history you can touch.
