Kroeber probably bought the movement from a maker such as Noah Pomeroy, who commonly made the type of escapement used in this clock (strip deadbeat),

  1. I have this exact clock that has been handed down from my family. Mine hung in the Railroad station in Clarksville, OH and the base is inscribed with PC&S for Penn Central and Southern Line. My great grandfather was the station master.

    I was excited to see this post as I had never been able to find out anything about this clock. If you have any other info about it I would greatly appreciate it.
