I thought it might be as well, but I didn't see any mention of the LS that is on the button.  I hought maybe it was an extension of the Lower Saucon line, but couldn't see the pattern at all.

The LS could be for  Lehigh & Susquehanna branch of the Lehigh Valley or one of the other subsidiaries.   Another possibility for the LS is Lake Shore Railroad since both the Lehigh Valley and the Lake Shore were controlled by the Vanderbilts for a while.  The LVRR really pushed its supposed connection to the lakes for a while.

I looked down those paths as well, but I couldn't find an image for definate proof.  I think it's the right track though Smiley

Smart man.   I've seen an identical button, except that the LS is an LV (which is what would be expected).   Makes you wonder if it is a knock-off, a modification, or a special button for a subsidiary, doesn't it?   Hopefully they will be able to give you answers.
