A lantern is an often portable source of lighting, typically featuring a protective enclosure for the light source – historically usually a candle or a wick in oil, to make it easier to carry and hang up, and make it more reliable outdoors or in drafty interiors. Lanterns may also be used for signaling, as torches, or as general light-sources outdoors. Our present two models represents two of many typical and famous lanterns of our past or even present used on railways. The earliest railroad lanterns were called fixed-globe lanterns where the globe was stationary to the lantern's frame and base. Used from the early 1860s to the mid 1870s, fixed-globe lanterns were functional until a new style of lantern grew in popularity. At the turn of the 20th century, railroad operators used colored globe lanterns for illumination and signaling at night. The meanings of the colors were the precursors to our modern traffic light system. White was used to indicate that it was safe to proceed, green signaled caution, and red meant stop or danger.
