Here is a fine and seldom seen railroad lantern made by the Star Headlight Company. The railroad is the Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific Railway. As you can see in the picture of the bottom of the pot holder, there is a neatly-made round opening.
The pot and brass burner are in very good condition and are original to the lantern. There are no holes in the pot. The wick is completely intact and was never lit.The red globe is intact and has no cracks. The globe was made by Corning and is not railroad marked. The stamped letters have the same light surface rust as the rest of the lantern. This means that the letters have been subject to the same weathering for the same period of time that the lantern was in railroad use.
This is only the third time I have seen a lantern marked for this railroad, and that was a long time ago. Below is some data on the DW&P Ry. In 1909, CNoR incorporated the Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific Railway, and construction started to achieve access south from Virginia, Minnesota, to. Duluth was reached in 1912, providing interchange with several US railways.
The DW&P mainline ran for 167 mi (269 km) from Duluth Junction at Fort Frances (CNoR interchange) to DW&P Junction Northern Pacific Railway.
