Illinois watch that survived car/train crash. This belonged to my fraternal grandfather's brother who worked for the railroad. In 1923 his car stalled on the tracks & was hit. He his wife & 16 mo. old daughter were killed. Guess this was the only survivor. Had it cleaned & it still works.
Don't know if this qualifies as a railroad watch. He didn't make it to the 50 yr. mark anyway.
