Browsing ebay recently I came across an old BR tail lamp. At 10 pound starting bid, I thought why not! Well I was the lucky winner and ended up paying 17 pound for it.
Tis in need of a bit of TLC as can be seen from the pictures below. Although it has the safety chain inside the paraffin receptacle and wick are missing – never mind I still think it’s a bargain.
Brings back memories of when I was on the railway and as a guard carting the tail lamp from one end of a 4 Sub to the other at stations such as Epsom Downs and Coulsdon North both stations which no longer exist (Epsom Downs was demolished and relocated) – Happy days.
