I have the same watch and am rather disappointed with it. It stops all the time. I bought mine at a train show somewhere a long time ago. It is a good looking watch. I hope you have better luck with yours.

> Just bought a pocket watch with Norfolk & Western Railway on the upper part of the dial face, and a rendering of a "J" pulling a passenger train on the lower part of the dial. The front of the case has a fairly nicely detailed 0-4-4-0 with a tender and a heavyweight behind it. Back of the case is just a floral design.


> Was expecting a quartz movement when I saw it, but picked it up and found it to be a "real" watch. Was very surprised to find it's actually a nice watch with maybe five movements per second, but no markings that might help identify it.


> Were these watches produced during the excursion days? That's my guess, anyway. I'd just like to know a little more about it's history. Don't care about valuation or anything like that - no matter when it was made it's part of the family now.
