50 Boston & Maine RR Fixed Globe Lantern with Cut B&MRR - Boston & Maine Railroad - Fixed Globe Bellbottom lantern with a clear wheel cut B&MRR globe. Made by New England Glass Company. This is the lantern on page 26 of Richard Barrett's comprehensive Lantern Encyclopedia book. The B&MRR marking on the glass is in 1 1/8" tall block lettering. The top assembly is clearly the NEGCo hashed dagger that they are well known for. There is a single wire wrap to the lid. This is not a repair. You can see how expertly the craftsman snipped the tin a perfect intervals. A shop repair would be crude compared to this tin work. There is old gunk in the lettering and it helps to really show how nice the lettering is. New owner, don't clean this. The metal bell has a minor imperfection on the edge. No biggie, it's the glass that matters. Excellent condition and an opportunity to have an example "from the book".

60 Fixed Globe Brass Conductor Lantern - Brass Fixed Globe Conductor Lantern. This is not a common style of lantern. Brass Fixed globe frames are very hard to find. Several factors make this an old frame: 1) no joint clips on the wires 2) "bicycle spoke" verticals with butt joints in the base skirt 3) hollow base 4) inability to remove/replace the globe 5) the base is secured using two button springs / There are no maker or patent markings of any kind. The brass has been polished. Included is a P&R RY cast globe that would be from the 1900 era but the frame is from the 1870 era. The separation of the vertical wires on the base allowed for pinching the Reading globe in. The globe could be replaced if a vintage globe is inserted and the base wires are re-soldered. On something this old, it's a worthy project. I tried to measure the base diameter of the globe and It was similar to 3 1/4" so something like a #39 size may be what's required. I did not have calipers up in Brookline when I did the pictures, just a tape measure so this should be double checked. The burner could also be upgraded to something older. It's a #2 size so a replacement is not difficult. Excellent condition for its age.

160 Pennsylvania Railroad Fixed Globe Lamp, Fancy PRR lettering - Fixed Globe interior Lamp with cut and acid etched inscription for the Pennsylvania Railroad. This is a remarkable lamp. The Globe is plastered into place, hence the name "fixed globe" and it measures 6" of visible area. There are extensions off of the top and bottom so that the plaster can hold the globe into the brass frame. There is a fancy wreath and the center has PRR in intertwined letters. There are NO detractions in the glass globe at all. / The frame is all brass. It stands 25" tall in total height. The base can be removed by a three point bayonet mount that has a simple spring catch. There is evidence of old tarnished brass on the interior near the plaster. This is what you want to see in something this old that has been cleaned and helps to authenticate the lamp. The base has a two point bayonet mount sprung assembly that looks like it takes a candle or candle like device. There are no markings from a manufacturer or patent. The one thing I could find is that the larger mounting plate has what looks like "1357" shop stamped on the reverse. The top ball finial is threaded. During the preview - DO NOT play with this. The risk of globe damage by the internal threaded nut or using a broom stick to hold the nut in place to screw it back on is too risky. This is a special lamp and before leaving an absentee bid, please check to see if delivery or pickup can be arranged. I want to make sure it gets to its new home safely and shipping something this fragile in this size is not something I want to do.

284 Conductor Lantern - "S. E. Cronk" #39 with Green over Clear Globe - C. T. Ham Manufactured Brass Conductor Lantern #39 with presentation globe to "S E CRONK". This is a large model (#39) and it has a removable bell. The #39 takes a standard globe size but each manufacturer could design the frames any way they wanted. This was an early first step toward standardizing by manufacturers. The globe is a nice free blown Green over Clear with a presentation wreath and the name "S E CRONK" in nice old English lettering. The globe measures 5 1/2" total height with 5" of display area. The top and bottom diameters are standard for a #39: 2 1/2" and 3 1/4". There is a minor flake off the top of the globe. The globe is heavy and nice. The frame has been polished to a high shine. The bell is not square. The frame lists to one side. Because the bell is completely removable this could be straightened. This is not simple but it is possible. Because the frame and globe are so nice. it is a worthy project. The intake and vent holes are fancy and not just holes punched in a simple pattern. The base is clearly stamped "C. T. HAM MFG Co" - #39. Very Good condition because of the leaning bell otherwise Excellent.

The plate reads, "WM PORTER & SONS, NY - PAT Aug 3, 1869, June 18, 1871, Dec 12, 1882". This is an earlier frame. To do the fancy scroll work along the vent area is no small job. The fount is a small two spring pinch-pot. The frame metal is a nice dark uncleaned color. The free blown (correct) globe is 5 1/16" tall with a visible area of 4 1/2". The extended base is substantial. The glass is very heavy. The globe top diameter is 2 1/4" and the base is 3 1/4". The top is narrower that a #39.

302 Diesel Locomotive Cab Signal Indicator - We donít see many of these in New England. It is technically called an ADU (Aspect Display Unit). It is made of cast metal with a glass panel insert with stencils for signal indications. This is a 4 signal model. It would have been mounted vertically. Because it is positional and not color based it is probably Pennsylvania Railroad and not New Haven. Used in passenger service the 4 signals are: Clear, Approach Medium, Approach, Restricting. Approach Medium used both a vertical and diagonal signal. The clear glass is cracked and it could be swapped out. It has a cast number of "166285B" on the inside. It measures 15" by 4" and it has the mounting hangers on the ends. I think that these were just used in passenger service because of the time required to reduce speed quickly on a freight haul wouldn't really work. Very dirty but good basic condition.
