Details & Specs

In the aftermath of WWII, the Soviet Union undertook a massive effort to rebuild and expand its devastated national railway network. At its height, it would be composed of more than 90,000 miles of track and linked all the republics of the U.S.S.R. to the centralized military command structure in Moscow.

This Railroad Candle Lantern offers a rare first-hand look into the Soviet industrial mindset. Rugged iron frame is treated with a rustic rubbed-oil finish for long-lasting corrosion resistance. Simple candle illumination offers dependable light without worry of power failures or battery technology. Designed to be carried by a conductor during their rounds, or hung from a wall mount.
