Btw. "Doutník" (=Cigar) isn't the official name of the lantern but rather a name made up by some lantern collectors - based on its looks. Maybe the product line 246xx could appear in the light info section...

Not a misoLEDist...

There's actually 3 different lanterns that show in the pic
Neat old building...almost looks more like a house than a train station...

On and there's a weed or small tree growing out of one of the chimneys!

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

This is rather standard design of railway service buildings originating from era of the Austro-Hungarian empire. So I guess you will see similar buildings from the states of former Yugoslavia, through Austria, Hungary, Czech/Slovak republics through Poland, of course if survived (for sure at least in former Czechoslovakia, as well as Austria,)
They contained offices, but as well the living quarters for the railway service workers.
You will find many very similar along all tracks from that era, but many of them have today different purpose and owners.
They were all from one architect, a form of "standard issue building plans"...

No more selfballasted c***

Indeed there are stations in Poland with similar design, for example Sucha Beskidzka and Nisko:

Photos I saw suggest that they used to be ubiquitous in Bratislava. Ca. 1984 most of them were already replaced by new HPS fixtures...
