CGE half piper haul

Very solid lights. Tested one but only one ballast worked. Made a nice thud when powered on. Ballasts are rusty and wires are rotton so i will have to convert these to rapid start. Ill try to preserve the best working ballast. These will look nice once cleaned up and given a fresh coat of paint

Nice find! Here's the catalogue page for them. Seems like the fixtures were supposed to have decorative endcaps and a optional diffuser. I guess for replacement ballasts, rapid start is a good solution for now since the only source of new preheat ballasts is eBay.

I wonder if these have the same GE tulamp brick style ballast that's around the same size as a modern HO ballast that my CGE preheat turret uses.

The ballasts are tulamp HO size beasts. Sadly they are too damaged to be used. I plan to make end cap covers to make it look nice

Keep it preheat! You will not regret it. Put the NOS preheat ballasts in it and you will never have to do it again.

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

I'll keep the links in mind, but for now those fixtures will get repainted and get a pair of rapid start ballasts. My ebay budget is being kept for the upcoming purchase of another Lithonia turret
