Think railroad, conductor, lights and you get vintage railroad lantern lamps.
Once used for relaying signals and inspecting trains, these vintage metal lanterns were a trainman’s best friend. Made from a metal cage with a translucent globe to protect the light, these lanterns were originally lit with with kerosene. Often referred to as a trainman’s lantern, conductor’s lantern or inspector’s lantern, these vintage lamps were used to inspect trains in the terminal and train yard. And now they can be used to decorate your home or yard. I can picture it now, waving to my crew with lantern in hand, dinner’s ready!
Vintage railroad lantern lamps
These trainman lanterns have worked hard
I can feel their pain
And the rust
Love vintage and the price too!
