We start off  looking at an excellent build of a coaling stage and end up talking about oil by-products !!!!

Sorry, Nick, must add this here, too!

http://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk/MM037%20Morris%20Minor%20High%20Top%20Pink%20Paraffin.htm


One of these sat in a faux-fire surround when we lived in a cottage in W Sussex






And one of these saw SWMBO, sprog and I through several hard winters, even cooking on top during the electric cuts, as the decorative top rim lifts off. I wish I still had it today!






There is a firm called 'Parrafinalia' that still supplies wicks etc for these, I get my Alladin 23 oil-lamp wicks from them.


Nostalgic Doofer, apologising for the hijack, but this wouldn't fit anywhere else and I'm sure someone will have a wistful chuckle over these!

:oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

We couldn't get "pink paraffin" in our village.  It was in rural Yorkshire and therefore no doubt truly "blue" ..........:roll::roll::roll:

Doug - those "Valor" stoves - I think virtually the same as the Aladdin - were very much a part of my childhood - particularly as the house wer lived in didn't have electricity !!  I'm not too sure about the claims of "no smell" ............:hmm

A typical Sunday morning chore for my brother and I was cleaning and trimming wicks and topping up all the heaters,  "storm lanterns" and "Tilley" lamps.  Do you remember those I wonder ?  They gave an incredible light - far better than the "energy savers" of today !!

This is turning into a history lesson, what with methods of coal handling and paraffin heaters and lamps.

Long may it continue...:thumbs

We used to have them in the Army and they were indeed very effective. The GWR used them to light some of their smaller stations......there are a couple of pages on them  in Stephen Williams book................feeble and no doubt ineffectual attempt to get back on track:mutley:mutley:mutley  :cheers

We had Pink Paraffin even in Mullion and the heater was quite good, but I think they gave out about 2 1/2 times the volume of the paraffin burnt in water vapour?  Have no idea where that came from, it is just one of those facts lodged in the brain somehow!

We had Tilley Lamps on BR and I had to use them several times at Haslemere during power cuts.  I remember having to get one of the railmen to light them because I just could not do it for some reason, but once lit and burning evenly the light they chucked out was amazing.

I have memories of badly burning my hand on one of those oil heaters.
As a very young lad I was testing the combustibility of 'frames' of film I'd found outside a cinema.
A search for knowledge which ended in agony.
