Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad C&O Handlan Switch Lamp
This is a Handlan switch lamp from the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad. It is a four aspect signal with 2 green and 2 amber lenses, typical of use in a classification yard, versus main line use. Lamp exhibits typical rust and dents you would expect from hard use in outdoor railroad service, but on the whole, the metal is still solid. One exception is the metal on the top vent of the lamp which has thinned out and rusted through near where the hinge would have been. See photos for details of this particular spot, as well as an idea of general rust near the edges.
The hinged rain cap is missing as well. Lenses are all in good shape, some marks and scuffs, but no visible chips or cracks. Inside of the lamp is in excellent condition, with only minor surface rust on the bottom plate. This lamp does not have a fount or burner, but would still make a great display piece. If you have any questions, or would like to see an additional photo of something, please contact me, and I'll be happy to reply.
