    This Lamp was used by my grandfather when he worked for the railroad. I have looked around and could not
    find another one like it to get some information to its actual name other than Handlan St Louis USA. Mystery
    unsolved? Maybe, if someone can shed some light.

      We have one. My husbands dad, who would be over 90 now had he lived this long, worked on the railroad in NJ, I believe. If you're still on this site looking for answers, reach back out to me and I can ask my husband.

      That is a really nice lamp! I looked on that auction site that I'm not sure I can mention. And there's red Handlan lanterns on there from multiple railroads. It really could be from any railroad. Which one did your grandfather work on?
