    I have acquired this flare lamp and I was wondering if anyone has any information about it.
    I would particularly like to know the following:-
    What exactly was it used for and over what period?
    Does the "WIGAN LOCO No 5" relate to a particular loco or does it relate to Wigan loco depot if there was one? I know of Springs Branch depot but not one called Wigan.
    There is a pin that screws into the wick in the spout. I have seen similar flare lamps on e-bay etc but none with this securing pin. Why does this lamp have one?
    Any other information would be greatly appreciated.
