I just picked up a pair at a yard sale. They cleaned up well and work great!!! Really heavy duty and well built!!! Great lanterns.

My Lantern has the same model # as the one pictured above, except mine is orange instead of blue. It works great! It uses GE# 27 bulbs and has a Transistorized Flasher. If you have one that doesn't blink and you want it to, You can replace the bulb with a GE# 407 Flasher Bulb.

On the railroad, a blue light is the nighttime equivelent of a blue flag. A blue flag or light protects railroad employees who will be working near or on railroad equiptment. When an employee places a blue light or a blue flag on a piece of equipment, it can not be moved by anyone until the employee who placed the light or flag takes it off.

Was probably a MOW lantern. Blue is always used for maintanance purposes on railroads. Great lantern.
