Parker & Karns City - Allegheny Valley. The Parker & Karns City RR was a small railroad that operated from 1873 to 1881 during the Pennsylvania oil boom. I have been told this is probably very rare and possibly the only one in existence.

Either Atlantic & Great Western Railway (1865-1871) or Atlantic & Great Western Railroad (1853-1880)

Can some old soldier's Dog Tag Chain be classified into this?
You might want to start a new thread for those. Dog Tags and Baggage Tags are two totally different things.

Wish I could join this thread. I would love to find a R.R. Baggage tag. I have found 2 Railroad padlocks and a Lackawana Railroad token, but no baggage tag.

I know a lot of people on T-net have found RR Baggage Tags. I'm surprised more haven't been posted here.

Beautiful tags, everyone!! Great finds.



Bought on ebay:

Your tag is related to this tag that I dug up near lake Springfield (a few yards from where the avatar trime was found).
Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Railroad. The logo dates 1896-1923.

I found my very first baggage tag yesterday 4/24/2021. It was found at a long defunct station east of town. The lettering says "Santa Fe Route", and the tag number.
