3AB98291-E2C1-4A8B-8EF9-B634ECAD6F87.jpeg  I searched through and couldn’t find anywhere about this specific issue. Got a 237, it has CNR on the bottom of the fount, seems fishy.

Cool Find! Looks like its got some crew marks from the Canadian National Railway. Search “CNR crew marks” and you’ll come up with a bunch of stuff.

(Edit: Deleted incorrect info about CNR now being CPR)

These are on my 247.

Um, aren't CPR and CNR two separate railroads?

Cool find on the lantern!

I wasn't questioning you, sir, I was questioning LJ's response about CPR having previously been CNR.  I believe they've always been separate entities.

Railroad crew lanterns have a special interest among a lot of the folks here, both the GPA kind and wickies.

I would say that marking is legit. I have a crew marked CPR 639 so why wouldn't CN do it too? Mine also has the flat bar screwed to the frame which allows you to mount to the hanging bracket.

And yes, CP and CN are two different companies.

@DougA for some reason I thought CPR bought out CNR. I don’t know why, I could have sworn I read that? Thank you though for catching the discrepancy. The last thing I want to do is spread wrong info to someone who’s looking for help!

@Mresteban, my apologies for sending incorrect information.

I agree with Shane. It's a legit one. Good find.

no need to apologize, we got there! I actually bought it just a regular old one on eBay, cleaning it up I saw it and was like, hmmmm. Luck into these things

Got it up and running. 237, empire, CNR with the sea foam green vent, 5/55. Not sure if original or not, but don’t tell my 228C, this may be a favorite. 9050A966-72FE-4B06-8AAA-DADF2EF0B7CB.jpeg

The correct vent for a 55 237 would be the same style but dark green.

Still looks good.

they sent a dark green one as well, but since I have absolutely fallen in love with the look of this one, I’m keeping this one on. This will be one of my main users (though it gets real warm). I have the original cap, but I was impatient to start it so threw on the first one I had sitting around.

Gotta love life online, sometimes it's hard to tell what people really mean, 😉

That's cool that you got the lantern going, and that it has a readable date for that era.  I have two 237s from the early 50s whose dates can't be read, which apparently is not uncommon for 237s from that time period.

ive wanted one for a long time, so to me you could’ve sent me one that was as rusty as could be and so long as it worked I would’ve been happy as a clam. I’ve been just basking in the glow of this one, not even really doing anything for the last two hours. These lanterns are crazy, you go from one 295 that you purchased because you thought your dads was a 295 (which it was actually a 220, but my memory from being a kid was terrible), to 33 lanterns, one catalytic heater, five stoves and one bench. I don’t know who I’ve become.

Welcome to collecting!  It goes like that whether it's lanterns or stoves or old radios or Pez dispensers or whatever rocks your world.  The items multiply in the night, I think.
