I found this lantern in a filthy condition at a train meet about ten years ago.  Knowing the "Charge of Quarters" enjoyed having candles or tea lights lit while she enjoyed our back porch in the evening, I gave the dealer $40 for the lantern and took it home.  When I put it on the kitchen counter, Sylvia was surprised, but got out some cleaner and a rag.  Inside of 15 minutes, she had it clean and pointed out where "NY Central System" was embossed in the top metal part of the lantern.   It works fine, burning plain old lamp oil you buy in Walmart or Target.
