May have FINALLY found the Wilcox lantern
Wed Oct 12, 2016 10:27am

After years of hunting, some railroad experts have cued me in on what lantern Sundance may have used to stop the train: a rare Dietz Signal lantern w/red and white lenses, which was around and being used in the late 1800s. One just sold on ebay and the owner gave me permission to use his photos. Wish I knew about it before, and I would have bid on it! But this appears to be what the robbers used. At least, nothing else fits the description of a red and white single lantern that anyone can find that would have been used in 1899
