Its such a shame scenes like this are being destroyed
they replace them for LED to be "energy saving" even though the LPS has sometimes even better efficiency than the LED that replaced it

I agree its a shame that scenes like this are disappearing and speaking of clown crazes I had one approach my car months back when I had my very young son. I drove straight for him then braked hard causing him to run away scared.

Is this in the UK? I am guessing it is but the bracket arms look like nothing I've seen here.

Doesn't matter where it is, SOX is welcome anywhere Just wish we had a bit more of it around here

Yes this is in Australia, and as a matter of fact these still exist well into 2018 though with SOX being discontinued their days may be numbered sadly. The energy company here may have stocks of SOX lamps as they do seem to re-lamp them when the lamps fail.
