These fixtures are long gone, however, the Tomorrowland train station still has similar fixtures in service.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

I was reading an article of a lighting designers' trip to Disneyland, they critique things they saw, i probably would be looking at the lights too.
The "California Adventure" section was a humorous observation.

I'm not endorsing this company, nor do i work for them, the article gave me a chuckle.

The Westinghouse bulb comment. “One of our LED corn light bulbs would do well here.” Ummmmm NOPE! I’d stick a coated filament LED bulb in there. It’ll be far better looking than whatever they sell. I’m seriously laughing at that part of the article.

Want to use LEDs in place of incandescent bulbs to save on electric bill? Do it right and use filament LEDs.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

Both the Disney land and WDW parks are starting to use LED filament bulbs in most of their incandescent fixtures and the LEDs do a very good job mimicking the color.

Those fixtures were on Autopia until the year 2000 when the track was remodeled under the New Century theme.

Here you see them in 1996. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c8/Autopia96_wb.jpg

Streetlights are most often overlooked by society as we go about in life. I have had an interest and fascination for them since I was very little. I love drawing detailed city-scapes and the streetlights are my signature. They always play an important role in my drawings. Like Bob Ross' clouds.

Those had F20T12 back then IIRC. That story of the lighting guy was funny especially his wondering where they got all those incandescent bulbs.

Some of those lights are still up. I was there early in 2019, there were a few still functioning. None of the double arm ones, though.
