Hello all. I live in the great state of Texas and come from a railroad family. All 3 of my brothers, our dad and one sister n law all worked for Southern Pacific at one time. I'm the only one in the family who never could get hired on. However, I love all things related railroad! A couple of years ago, my oldest brother gave me (what used to be our dads) Adlake Non Sweating Lamp. I'm in the process of reconditioning it and make it work again. I would love to know what year it was made. I've taken a few photos of it hoping someone within the group can tell me a little more about this particular lamp.
