Antique Train Wagon Lights on Lancaster steam train. We took a ride on the last remaining train dinning wagon. The train wagon lights where a wonderful find. I love the way they look and seeing them decorated for Christmas was just wonderful. Oil lamps were introduced in 1842 to light trains. Economics drove the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway to replace oil with coal gas lighting in 1870, but a gas cylinder explosion on the train led them to abandon the experiment.
