Caledonian Railway 3 aspect Handlamp with a large brass plate engraved 'KIRKBUDDO STATION No 4'. The cone is stamped 'Caledonian 1622' and the side of the lamp, above the brass plate, is stamped 350 so a very early lamp with a different insert. The reservoir is original and also stamped 'Caledonian' but the burner is a later, unmarked replacement. All aspect glasses are missing. The lamp is totally unrestored. Note: Kirkbuddo station lay between Broughty Ferry and Forfar through the quaint villages of Monikie and Kingsmuir. It closed to passengers on 10th January 1955 and completely on 9th October 1967.
