This is the Virginia & Truckee Railroad McKeen Paperweight, now in the private collections of the N.S.R.M., this was given to the President of the V&TRR in 1909 or 1910 when the #22 was built and shipped.

Here is a photo of the paperweight given to the Woodstock and Sycamore Railroad for the multiple orders of #707, #709, and #711.

Here is the McKeen Paperweight my private collection, I bought it from a man in Omaha, Nebraska, which leads me to believe it was given to one of the employees of the company or to an official of the Union Pacific Railroad.  I am working on having castings made of this paperweight, so as to use them as a fund raiser for my project.
