I found this in a corner in a warehouse full of used industrial equipment and electrical stuff. It needs serious cleaning and paint but works fine. I was wondering about putting a third lamp in there! Unknown brand, Advance ballast details are in other upload in Lighting Components folder.

Very nice , I reckon if it has the facility for a third tube to go for it. Unless you want to keep it original that is.

Look forward to seeing it restored.

Traffic signals & street lighting engineer. Please bring SOX/LPS back Downunder!!

Looks like a Miller fixture.

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

I'm currently in the process of converting a 2-lamp fixture to 3-lamp myself...

It does look like a Miller. I have the 3 tube preheat version of this. Mine have the starters in the socket assemblies, with two on one end and one on the other. They also have solid porcelain reflectors (with no uplighting) and they are in regular use in my barn.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

give me a year or so and I'll set out on that mission... I need to wait until i move out though, because my parents would not take to kindly to 20 fluro fixtures and various others sitting around and definitely will keep the help offer in mind..

it'll probably be sometime during the summer next year... maybe... summer is optimal because theres alot more foliage, so more cover, and i may or may not do it as a night mission.

Springfield Michigan, all the info's up in my profile lol,

mission target: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Battle+Creek,+MI/@42.307788,-85.1787741,255a,35y,249.08h,44.94t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x8817f1ae31d4bebb:0xfb804ce2cf0ff8b0!8m2!3d42.3211522!4d-85.1797142

notice that line of trees? there used to be a rail line running through there, infact, battlecreek used to be spiderwebbed with them, now we only have two active lines, there is still rails under those tress, but they are not connected to the main lines anymore

current fittings in the place:
a few 250W MV floods, at various locations on the outsides of the facility
maybe 20 or so slimline fixtures
15 or so preheat/rapidstart fixtures
20 or so holophane incandescent lowbays
3 or 5 of those kinda hubcap/bell shaped lights
3 or four halogen floodlights
2 or 3 MH highbays 400W
3 loading bay signals (those weird red green lights where trailers park)
2 exit light/emergency light combos (incandescent)
3 NEMA buckets around back, one has a bee hive in it
2 weird kinda sockets on arched arms (kinda like the ones you'd explect to see a reflector on)
10 or 15 vapor tight possibly MV or HPS fittings
probably much more... I have not even scouted some parts of the tunnels yet, and theres another building that i need to figure a way into, should not be too hard, place is falling apart.

That sounds a lot like the old mill where I rescued lots of old fluorescents.
