    Default Wanted: Railroad Keys, and maybe some odd locks

    As the title states, looking for current and antique/outdated railroad keys for my collection. Maybe some odd locks as well.

    IF you have a coach and/or bit/skeleton keys, let me know!

    Would also be interested in a quantity of cloned coach keys. If you can copy coach (skeleton) keys, please let me know (please note the railway no longer uses these keys). I purchased some old coach locks at an auction a while ago and wish to put them to use.

    PM please. Cash in hand.

    Default hello

    i had the lock listed on ebay for 1200.00 or best offer i had 15 watchers and 2 offers when ebay pulled it stating you are not allowed to sell railroad locks on ebay . they said the lock could be used to shackle someone against their will. that was their reasoning for pulling it . ebay sucks

    That is officially the most baffling, nonsensical reason that Ebay have ever given for pulling a listing!

    But however amusing it is, I can only imagine that you literally went ?

    Bet you still didn't get any sense out of them though, I never have!

    Did you point out to them that if they followed their own supposed logic, they would need to remove every other listing for any padlock, new or old, across the whole of their auction site?

    Question Same deal just yesterday...

    eBay pulled my listing also yesterday 21 railroad keys... all ancient, one dated 1884 even. Violation of the uniforms act or some beach sand... perhaps the terrorist have time machines..
