Hmmm. Lemme look.  I only paid $9 for mine, so didn't set up a photoshoot.
~~~ Time passes ~~~
Here it is in a group shot the day I got it.  I knew it was something at the time, but didn't know how good until I got home and looked it up.  This was in the first 6 months of my collecting.



Oh, here it is lit.

What about your other railway, the CNR, did it have any special lanterns with embossed lettering?

Sadly, no CNR embossed versions. There have been some crew-marked samples found with CNR scrawled and stamped on founts and collars in various ways.

Larry, thanks for the movie link.  There sure were a lot of unsung heroes on the CP.  It took a lot of tough, hardy men to run it.

Thanks Larry,
for the movie link..1957-58 Revelstoke Wow!
I wasn't sure if it was a 247, it didn't look like 247R .... maybe mine eyes deceive.

I wonder what the windchill was on the "tough" guys on speedster?
It looks COLD.
Cheers

Oh yeah! The ultimate CPR globe.

Great movie, thanks Larry. The lantern the snowshed linewalker is carrying looks to be a regular 247/242, but the lantern at 7:00 minutes in the switchers shack is a 247R, and the caboose scene is awesome. Kept hoping it would nudge over 4 inches or so to see the lantern wall bracket, but oh well, just cool to see them in their natural Hinterland Who's Who habitat!

Thanks again,

Mike.

I'm glad everyone is enjoying the movie. When I first saw it I said I know just where to share it.
I worked for the Milwaukee Road in the late seventies and early eighties. The Canadian Pacific
now owns the rails that the Milwaukee left behind. Of course the kerosene lanterns where gone
by the time I started there. But I love the history!

Here is my 79 639. I acquired it without a collar. I recently found a non-CPR collar. I am going to call it my 50/50 CPR 639.

Don't go by the location of the valve wheel on mine. Not sure if correct. Just returned it to the way I found it.

im thinking late 40s 1950s (frosted globe)
(they are very rare) most were broken years ago.

64 green pastel green sunrise
could also be red sunrise if late 64

200 bails were being intalled by mid 60s.

CPR logo under the valve wheel.
