Level crossing lamp from Wenhaston station

Found in a ditch by the road at Wenhaston Station site, this original Southwold Railway gate lamp provided warnings on the only public level crossing along the line. All four convex lamp glasses (2 red – 2 clear) are in beautiful condition, which is more than can be said for the metal lamp itself!  To see pictures featuring the gate go to pages 8 and 9 of the February 2005 issue on our Newsletters page.

Anyone got any ideas how to go about removing over half a century’s encrustations?
