This is a very scarce, small, tin, railroad oiler can from Disneyland.. It is an actual, working piece of equipment manufactured by the L. M. Eddy Manufacturing Company of Framingham, Massachusetts, in the mid- to late 1950s. These cans were part of a boxed "Chief Engineer" costume set sold at the theme park, for children to dress up and play railroad after returning home.
Made of tin, it is painted a coppery bronze color, with a painted, original label "Property of Chief Engineer / Walt Disney's Disneylane Railroad" and marked (C) Walt Disney Productions, Inc.
At only 12 inches tall, this oiler is a perfect miniature of the full scale "tall oilers" actually used to service real steam locomotives. The spout itself is approximately 8 inches tall. The oil can below is 3 inches across the bottom.
Condition: As you can see from the pictures, this oiler has been used (and can still be). It is in excellent condition with absolutely no rust, and no dents, splits or repairs. It is extremely clean inside. The top screws on and off and the threads are perfect. The spout is wonderfully straight with no bends or kinks. The wear on the painted label is the only issue.
Please look at all our pictures. Most of the paint loss is on the shoulders and handle: If you look at the photo marked "FINGER WEAR" in pink, you can see how it finger placement would cause wear from actually holding and using it.
