Lionel 711-54 Switch Lantern (Vented) - During the course of production of the Lionel 711 and 022 type switches, the 711-54 lantern changed three times. The earliest lanterns were made of a Bakelite derivative that easily deformed due to the heat from the bulb. These early lanterns had lenses that are very similar to those used on the 1122 switch lanterns. Lionel then changed the type of material used to mold its lanterns, and changed the lens to a flat red or green strip glued to the inside of the lantern. However, the heat from the 18v bulbs still caused the lanterns to melt. As a result, Lionel then added a small vent to the top of the lantern (as seen in the above picture) to correct the problem.
