Traffic signal collectors have tried to get these, but they're completely unobtainable. For signals in our collection that take them if we don't have an original bulb we'll have to rewire the sockets for parallel operation.

One option is to use 75 volt train bulbs and paint them. Dave D has a pair of these, IIRC are Duro-Test.

I did rewire my sockets for parallel and used two orange Phillips 8w LED's (60w equivalent) from home depot and honestly I can't tell the difference from the correct lamps ( I changed to LED because I only had 1 of the original orange bulbs and the only 60w equivalent was LED). I used a 8w daylight LED for the walk portion.

Correct. Duro-Test 60w 65v red pedestrian signal bulbs. We lit the pair in series on 120v.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Nice! The Marbelite LPS-20 is an example of the type of pedestrian signals that would have used this type of lamp. The bulbs for the walk would have been a lunar white bulb that looked bluish when off. There's a couple of those on the local Kijiji but the seller wanted a lot for them.

Another option if you had such a signal would be to install a 240v step up transformer in housing and run two 120v lamps in series but rewiring to parallel would be the cheapest and easiest option for a collection piece.

Would the white incandescent "walk" bulb also be rated at 65 volts?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

actually, the white "walk" bulbs are standard 120v . The don't walk bulbs are 65v because they are wired in series for safety reasons. The word "don't" has only by 1 orange lamp which is only on during"don't walk" while the word "walk" has both a orange bulb, used during "don't walk" and the white bulb, used during "walk". So because the word "walk" is lit both during "walk" and "don't walk" if the bulb in the word "don't" burns out, the signal will always say "walk"which could be potentially very dangerous, even deadly especially for say, someone who's colorblind or just not paying attention to the COLOR of the word "walk"
