In 1969, when Tim Leefeldt was just a boy, he took a train ride from Oakland to Promonotory Point, Utah, to witness a re-enactment of the “Driving of the Golden Spike,” an event honoring the centennial of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. It was a trip he remembers fondly as having honored his late great-grandfather, who had been a railroad executive in the 19th century. Fast-forward to present day, and Leefeldt’s nostalgia for the industrial age continues to inspire his work as a craftsman and architect.

While some of us might dismiss abandoned glass insulators,traffic light lenses, and other vintage railroad products as junk, Tim Leefeldt saw the potential in these items and gave them a new life in a unique and creative way. His insulatorlights™ by Railroadware™ are made in an old barn in Chico,CA. The process begins with a 100 year old insulator – they come in a variety of colors and styles from clear to deep aqua. Some are left to shine by themselves while others are embellished with rusted metal hoods. All fixtures are wired to modern standards. These upcycled and repurposed items would make a stunning statement in any style of decor. We can picture several of them hanging over a kitchen island.
