I finally found the slimline fixture I was looking for! I needed one for my workshop. I also took a couple more slimline lamps, some more F40Ds, and a few more slimline ballasts (there were several slimline fixtures, but only the one pictured wasn't all bent).

It's almost a Westinghouse It's a Philips from May 1984. Back then they still used the same equipment, so it's a Westinghouse with a Philips etch.

It is indeed burnt out, unfortunately. I will still keep it ^_^

Philips still uses Westinghouse equipment except the machinery that makes the guards and stems inside the tubes in its US fluorescent factory

Yeah I heard they still have the same equipment in the Salina, KS factory. My Philips slimline comes from the Trois-Rivieres, QC factory. It seems that all Philips tubes from that factory made in the 1983 - '88 or so timeframe are virtually identical to the old Westinghouse tubes, except the different etch. They disappeared when Philips closed the factory...

Here's one from 2/84
