Navigation Lights
Ship starboard and port navigation lights.
Starboard and Port navigation lights were used to show which way a ship was travelling at night. Ships travelling toward each other have to pass Starboard side to Starboard side. These lights are also called the running lights on vessels. The starboard light on the right is green while the port light on the left is red. Railway Coastal Museum. 2004.0049, 2004.0051.
