ok ok so not a vehicle however it is transport related :D


A Kenyons Serilight Lens Road Danger Lamp made by Alexander Kenyon& Co. Ltd



It was an impulse purchase from an antiques sale room on the way back from Wilmslow in Cheshire.


When I bought it I thought it was an old railway lamp... but as we all know, google is king and after a brief search I found a lot more information about it :eek:


Pictures below showing various stages of restoration. I'm quite happy with the finished product. Just one thing to sort and that is the leak on the oil reservoir... at the moment it has a slightly modified sandwich bag acting as an innertube to retain the oil :thumbs:

Looks very similar to the lamps the railways used on level crossing gates (before rising barriers) so I am not surprised you thought it was a railway lamp.
