Old RailRoad Car Double Candle Lamp wall sconce

A great antique railroad wall double candle sconce from the era of the Iron Horse. . These lights and others like them likely once hung on the walls of some passenger car back in the early days the Railroad.These candle lamps made perfect night lights for passengers on a train, trying to sleep as steel wheels grab and pull over the iron tracks....DIMENSIONS: lamp measures 15 inches tall and a little under 12 wide. The glass chimneys are in excellent condition. The brass frames show some light bumps & bruises from normal wear and tear, but they still look great. Candles rest on top of a spring, which can probably be adjusted, but Im not sure how.Just like they did a hundred years ago, these old railroad sconces burn with a warm, soothing glow.

CPRR became part of the South Side Railroad which connected Petersburg to Lynchburg and interchanged through traffic with the Virginia and Tennessee RR. William Mahone began construction of the Norfolk & Petersburg RR (N&P) in 1853 in Norfolk VA. During the American Civil War, 1864-1865 the N&P was damaged. William Mahone was a major general for the Confederate Army during the war, and later became the President of all 3 Railroads, N&P RR, South Side RR, V&T RR. In 1870 he drove the MERGER of all 3 to form the Atlantic Mississippi & Ohio RR (AM&O). AM&O RR was a 408 mile line from Norfolk to Bristol, VA. The headquarters, city of Lynchburg, was the midpoint of the AM&O RR and is where the Mahone family resided after the war. In 1881, the AM&O was reorganized and renamed Norfolk & Western”….summarized from WIKIPEDIA .
