Further in answer to Brent Greer's questions about markers...

Attached is a photo of a Pyrex "chimney" which clipped down around the
marker wick and protected the flame from drafts.  The left end shoved down
into the four retaining spring wires, and projections bent into the spring
wires seated in the "detent" cast into the glass, thereby holding the
chimney firmly in place.

I found a pair of these in the oil can cabinet of an old wooden N&W caboose
50+ years ago.

Photo attached.  And, so that you chaps don't have to be constantly
offended by the name on the ruler I use in photographs for showing scale,
if someone will send me a nice N&W ruler, I will be delighted to use it in
future photographs !
