The clock was a Christmas present from a friend 25 or 30 years ago when I was the building the layout. He grew up in Cleveland and thus saw C&O trains and I grew up in central Kentucky and saw C&O when I was young, There is no brand name on the clock anywhere. Sometimes, I save boxes but I am not sure if I did on this one. I look later tonight in the place in the house I sometimes store boxes.

I can't find the box the C&O clock came in (if it was in a box designed specifically for this clock), but the more I think about it, my friend and I used to go to York almost every spring and fall (actually for 25 years) and I vaguely remember several dealers selling these in all different road names. Plus I have seen similar clocks at car shows with Chevy, Ford, Dodge, Mustang, Corvette.... So I am guessing some company back in the 90s had the guts (black shell, plexiglass screen, quartz clock) and all someone needed to do is send them a picture to put on the face.

Thank you for checking.  You may be right about picking it up at York 25 yrs ago as I recall my first time there and indeed there were folks selling items like that then.   You brought back a great old memory.

I recently acquired the C&NW version of this six-axle crane (yellow) and boom tender (black) that someone saved me the effort of two-railing; too bad that they do not have the original boxes and packing. I also have the smaller Erie four-axle crane (yellow) without a boom car. I just use a flatcar. Note that the boom on this one is considerably longer than the six-axle one.
