My Take

This railroad lantern is awesome. It looks realistic and has all the features of a real lantern. I have it set up as a lamp beside my bed and it’s perfect. The best part is, it’ll still be functional even if there’s a power outage. Having it close by can be an advantage in such circumstances.
