Offered is a vintage piece of Colorado Railroad History ; a DENVER & RIO GRANDE WESTERN Railroad Lantern with a Clear CNX, ADLAKE KERO Lantern Globe. The frame is an Adlake 250 Kero and is embossed on the dome D&RGWRR. The lantern frame is in excellent condition; overall clean metal with some light pitting on the lid; stands straight, no extra holes drilled, major dents, bent, broken or missing parts. The bail is wire wrapped, probably done long ago by the railroader that used the lantern 90 or so years ago.It comes with an Adlake 300 fuel fount and burner (takes a 5/8 flat wick) that appears to be in working order. The fount contains its original factory wadding, wick easily moves up and down, should hold fuel and burn if desired (not tested). The Clear Lantern Globe is in excellent condition and cast ADLAKE KERO along with the CNX Corning Glass Co. The globe is free of scratches, cloudiness, chips or cracks. As with any globe that was used in railroad service, there may be some minor chipping on the top and bottom rims, but these are a no show when seated in the lantern frame. The Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad was formed in 1921 when the Denver & Rio Grande merged with the Denver & Rio Grande Western. It existed until 1988 when it merged with the Southern Pacific. The Southern Pacific was absorbed by the Union Pacific in 1996 and many portions of the line are still operated today.
