    RE: Edison Battery Oil

    WHEN I FIRST STARTED COLLECTING BOTTLES IN 1974 THOSE ROUND EDISON BOTTLES COULD BE FOUND ALL DAY LONG ON THE TRACKS. WERE THEY STILL BEING USED THEN? {1974} COURSE BACK THEN COULD FIND PAT.COKES,ACLS,ON THE TRACKS! PLUS PEOPLE DUMPED THEY TRASH THERE! I FOUND A STRAIGHT SIDE BOTTLEING WORKS BOTTLE FROM DALLAS GA. TO THE SIDE OF THE TRACKS! ALSO FOUND MANY BOTTLES ,THAT YOU COULD TELL WAS A SMALL DUMP, ALONG SIDE THE TRACKS. WONDER HOW COMMON IT WAS FOR PEOPLE TO THROW THEY TRASH CLOSE TO RAIROAD TRACKS? NEVER SEEN NOTHING ON THIS,BUT FROM WHAT I FOUND IT WAS DONE. JAMIE

    RE: Edison Battery Oil

    Cool, not only a nice bottle but a real blast from my past. Welcome to the forum Pat.
    If I still had my Silvertone I'd have thought about making you an offer.[:)]

    Nice find. I have one of them myself. I've seen many others that were broken, on former railroad right of ways. They are hard to spot because they are so small.

    Agree with Glass Man, I used to find a lot of Edison Oil bottles (and other neat stuff) along the tracks (when it was sorta ok to walk them) back then. But Nickel Iron, that one still full is COOL. We got tons of insulators and date nails too.
