Vintage railway signal lamp. Material: Iron and stained glass

Dimensions: 14 inches x 9.5 inches

In the days before electric train signals were invented, railways used rail lamps exactly like the one featured here. The signal lamp served an important purpose by communicating signals between trains and stations at night. The lamp would be used by the rail guard to signal if the train could proceed or needed to halt. A timely signal meant the difference between life and death.  

The signal lamp pictured here is more than 50 years old. It is made of iron and has red and green stained glass sliders. Inside, it contains a candle holder. Pushing the slider would change the colour, changing the signal from "Stop" to "Go" and vice versa. This makes for an excellent collectable item.
