ATCHISON TOPEKA & SANTA FE RAILWAY

Item # 12336

The classic Santa Fe Reliable bell bottom. This stellar example of the Adlake model 1913 Reliable is nearly 100% fully tinned and rust free. Embossed Santa Fe on the bell, this lantern has all original parts save for the fuel font which appears to be a model 400 pot but matches and probably has been with the frame a long time. Globe retainer has a bit of corrosion and minor damage.

One of the iconic symbols of western railroading was the Santa Fe circle cross logo. Recreated in glass on this corning 5 3/8" globe, it frames the opening between the lid and wire guard perfectly. The casting is fully defined, but not heavily struck and the globe is crystal clear with only minor rim nicks. Just a great set waiting for a top shelf to display.

OREGON SHORT LINE RAILROAD

Item # 11620

O.S.L. in large letters on the lid of this model 1897 Adams & Westlake ADAMS frame. Any pre-1900 OSL lantern is difficult to find these days and this frame is hard to beat. Some very minor pitting in some isolated spots but overall this frame shows smooth metal and tinning over virtually the entire surface. The twist off font looks to be from an early R.E. Dietz frame but fits and fills the spot until the appropriate A&W model can be obtained. A gorgeous uncompromised frame in excellent condition.

The globe in this lantern is a clear cast extended base style marked OSL in big fat letters. Very few of these globes exist in any condition. The only thing keeping this globe from being unbelievable is the impact cracks emanating from the top rim on opposite the lettering. The globe displays very nicely and again, fills the spot until an upgrade can be obtained.

Any OSL extended base frame or globe is hard to come by and this set certainly has the potential to be a top shelf addition.
