The Train is now leaving on track five for Anaheim, Azusa, Mom’s Garage and Cuc…amonga !

Watch out, somewhere up and down the eastern seaboard

there’s a train without lights !!

These Train lanterns are from the Dressel Lamp company, Arlington New Jersey.

they date I guess from the 1920’s, any help you can give me would be appreciated.

My Great Grand Father worked on the railroad (all the live long day) 

the way the story goes when he took a lunch break

his sardine sandwiches smelled so bad the train just left without him.

The lanterns are used, but not that much. 

I guess my Great Grand Father didn’t work that hard
