Antique Railroad Lanterns
An antique railroad lantern is certainly not an easy thing to find. It is very unlikely you will find an antique
railroad lantern in any of your local stores. But what exactly is an antique railroad lantern? Chances are,
if you know what they are, then you either worked on the railroad or you're an enthusiast. Antique railroad lanterns
were used by railroad workers at night, in order for them to see their way, and to see what they are working on
in front of them. Back then, lanterns were commonplace lighting in order to see at night. They mainly were
operated by using kerosene and did not have any battery or etc.
Some popular antique railroad lanterns that some search for are Union Pacific Railroad Lanterns or Pacific CP Railroad
Lanterns. These lanterns symbolize the major railroad powers both back then, and still in present day.
If you want to get fancy, you could consider a Sterling Silver Oil Lantern. Not every lantern burns on kerosene,
others also can burn with oil.
Hanging lanterns are lovely decorative pieces that look great in your front yard or back yard. They are mostly battery or electricity operated, as having a hanging lantern that needs to be restocked with fuel all the time is not convenient. Most times you will need to bury the electrical wiring for the hanging lanterns under the ground.
Battery powered lanterns are of course safer then their fuel burning counterparts. However, for a true antique
experience, battery powered is not the way to go.
