A Norfolk & Western "Loaner" Pocket Watch recently sold on eBay.  The
seller states that Norfolk & Western had their own "watch maker" who
travelled in a special railcar servicing and repairing employees' watches.
When a railroad worker left a watch to be serviced they were given a
"Loaner" pocket watch to use until the servicing of their watch was
complete.  The Hamilton 992-B 21 jewel watch back is engraved "PROPERTY /
N&W / RY / ROANOKE, VA.  Does anyone have more information about the era
and frequency when this watch-maker traveled across the system?

Best wishes,
