Agent's Keys, Speonk, NY LIRR
Keys and I.D.  tag courtesy of Tom Collins, 
Dave Keller archive

The two long keys
(1,2) are somewhat different versions of the old "coach key" used to (literally) lock up the end storm doors of the Pullman-Standard Coaches (2700, 2800 & 2900's)...all used the same ones.

The flat key is an old locker key(6) from the Agents Office to keep "his" stuff, and two of the shorter hollow barrel keys are signal keys. (4,7)

The other flat key, (not the old Ford ignition key (3) , with less "teeth" to it is for an old Miller (Mfgr) 6 or 8 lever lock(5) with a "push" key(8), used for signal or other general purpose locks...possibly with baggage use (as in literally lock up the baggage or freight packages...in a shed or room for that specific purpose).  The tag(9) is great.   Info: Robert Myers
