This was the first SOX lamp I had seen in person and knew/cared what it was. There are 3 of them at this intersection out in the boonies in VA, but sadly, only 2 are still working. It appears that more were down the street but had been replaced with HPS.

Looks like Philips SRM but I wonder what that part at the bottom is for.

Here's the best I can do for a day shot.

The one on the right side further back was replaced with a HPS lantern this time.

Bring SOX lamps back!!!

FYI, LED's are NOT the most efficient lighting technology available! Don't know how people keep coming to that conclusion!

My other interests: sports cars, refrigeration, microcontroller projects, computer hardware, and any sort of custom fabrication.

I always liked those lenses. They are thicker on the bottom than on the sides, for light spread below. However, if you look at them from different angles when lit, from the side it looks like the lamp is very thin. From directly underneath, it looks as the lamp is quite thick. It is the same effect as looking at an alcohol (red) thermometer. If you look directly in front, you see a thick column of liquid, but on the side it looks very thin.
