This lamp is called a caboose lamp because it was used in the caboose of trains to provide light.The bracket was designed to allow both vertical and horizontal movement of the lamp to absorb the rocking and swaying of the train car and to help absorb the force of sudden jolts.

While it may not have been very stylish, this caboose lamp was a marvel of ingenuity. This lamp new old stock. It is unused and in the original box.
