Railroadiana Items In Your Collection

I'd be interested in hearing from others who have railroadiana of any type in their collections. Pictures of your items would be great if you can manage it. 

I'm not big into collecting railroadiana, so I had to look around a bit.  I have three PRR kerosene lanterns, one with a red globe; a PRR tin drinking cup (not one of the modern repros); a brass PRR lock (switch lock?) with key and two freight car builder's plates.  Sorry, I don't have photos of any of them.

This isn't an official railroad artifact, but I thought I'd put it here just the same. This mailbox was a gift to my Dad 40+ years ago and he never used it because he always had a P.O. box. Last week I decided it's time to use it. This is one mailbox that only a train nut can appreciate.

Good fun, John!  I just hope it fairs better than my mailboxes here in New England and the evil snow plows.  I've got a couple of retired mailboxes set aside for creating an amusing engine house vignette -- and, yes, complete with "flag" signals :-).
