- Thanks to all who have sent in markings!
- In some cases, markings my not accurately reflect periods
and other subtle characteristics in lettering. The accuracy
of this material is not guaranteed.
- No ownership information is maintained with the survey listings.
All markings sent in for addition to the list are treated anonymously,
and no ownership information will be disclosed.
- Regarding the "C&C" marking, other railroads
are possible, but a collector who bought a lantern with this
marking emailed us to say that he believes it was from the
Carthage and Copenhagen Railroad. First, it was found less
than ten miles from where the Carthage and Copenhagen Railroad
was located. Second, while a good guess might be "Coal
and Coke Railway", the lantern is marked C&C RR, not
C&C Ry, and lanterns from the Coal & Coke were marked
with "Ry". Finally, Dietz "6" lanterns
were used mainly in New York, Pennsylvania, and lower New England
-- all New York Central Railroad territory, which was the line
most associated with this model. Note that the lanterns in
this survey are all from the Northeast region. The marking
listed as "L&A" is probably not from the "Louisiana & Arkansas" but
from another line.
