    Damn thought I was wearing my Tag quartz as I had it on the past two days working with water (power washing deck) realized I’m wearing something different. Is that early onset dementia or too many watches? image.jpg

    B&O Railroad Museum visit today. Accordingly, there were lots of pocket watches and clocks, including the Master Clock that regulated the other B&O clocks via an electric signal.

    I had to laugh when I saw one item in the array of “railroad” pocket watches. Smack dab in the middle is a “Trainman’s Special”. Also frequently seen as “Locomotive Special” as in the one in the image I have included. These are a well known fake railroad watches. Some of them have tarted up movements from the Trenton Watch Co. the one in the picture has a movement optimistically marked 23-jewels (there are 7 jewels, and 6 celluloid “cap” jewels that cover pivots with 0 jewels, for a total of 13), Adjusted (that's a joke), Locomotive a Special, Chicago. This one is rough as it is from the bottom of a dusty drawer where it has been for decades.

    Not to dump on your submission. I am always pleased to see such displays of pocket watches. But the curator sure missed the boat on the “Trainman's Special”. Notice the distinct similarity between the “Trainman’s Special” and the “Locomotive Special”!

    Have no worries about dumping on my post. I appreciate this sort of info - it's the best part of this forum. Indeed, the curation at this facility is underwhelming - not a great deal of info available on much of the collection. 90% of the visitors are parents with small children who are in love with Thomas the Tank Engine. But, for what it's worth, they have a world-class train collection.
