My Great-Grandfather's Railroad Clock

Bracket Clock

My mom gave me this clock when she downsized her house and moved into a retirement community.

It was her mother's, who had inherited it from her parents, meaning it belonged to my great-grandparents.

My great-grandfather received the clock as a retirement gift from The Denver and Rio Grand Railroad Company in 1913. It was accompanied my a very nice, hand-lettered resolution of retirement. There is a separate, matching resolution from The Western Pacific Railway Company. Apparently one was a division of the other?

I now have the clock and it works well. However, I don't see any brand, trademark or other identification on it, so am very curious to identify it.

Any ideas?
