    We have completed the construction and installation of three reproduction Adams & Westlake #207 oil burning Center Lights for the San Diego Railroad Museum's restoration of the 1886 ROCKDALE, SANDOW, & SOUTHERN RAILROAD #3 Baggage/Coach Combination "Jim Crow" Car. The founts and burners we used are originals made by Adams and Westlake in Chicago, but everything else, including the ceiling jacks, we reproduced based on original catalog drawings and the mounting holes of the original fixtures. The lamps are fully functional for use with oil, however, for the museum's use they are now illuminated with 12 volt quart halogen lamps concealed in the ceiling jacks. The lamps are finished in bright nickel plate, the same as the originals, as specified in historic papers that documented the details of how the car was outfitted. Originally the car had 5 of these lamps, but when it was converted to a segregated combination car, the two partitions that were added eliminated two of the lamps, leaving only the ceiling jacks.
