London Transport 22W 24V Bus lamp

London Transport 22W 24V Bus lamp

Click to view full size image

here is a very interesting lamp to me that im glad to finally have in the collection

its the lamp London Transport used to light the inside of their buses, like the famous Routemaster and the RT type before the Routemaster

its interesting in that, its a bespoke lamp for London Transport, all other bus lamps are normally 12W or 20W, however the London Transport bulbs are 22W

I would love to know who made this for London Transport, (going by the general construction I want to say GEC for London Transport), and if anyone knows the story behind these lamps, sadly theres no visible date code

it has a 50Mm diameter bulb

Thanks, it was kindly given to me by a Friend from his 1964 Routemaster Bus

there is 1 company, ceag Lumax that still "makes" these bulbs, however Im not sure if they are made by CEAG-Lumax themselves or if they are sourced in

My other hobby is buses, especially the Routemaster
