Fallen Cobrahead Replacement

Fallen Cobrahead Replacement

Click to view full size image

This GE M-250R2 was finally replaced. The old light was left lying on the ground for the better part of a year. Although it appeared to be salvageable, the utility ended up installing a new arm and luminaire. There's another M-250R2 that's still up adjacent to the new LED, but it's been cycling for the last year and they didn't fix it or the subsequent non-functioning HPS light. All of the lights east of this point were changed out to LED last winter but they stopped here. I suspect when they finally get around to it, they'll change out the last couple for LED as well. At least there's still one leased merc on this stretch lighting a private drive, which has had the same lamp for well over a decade. The public mercury lights are long gone here, but the rented lights are left alone until the lamps fail.

As bad as I have to admit it, nothing will stop the change to LED. There was a town in Illinois that still had porcelain series radials and the utility there finally changed them out. Many of them sold on Ebay for 182.00 to 431.00 each last month. At least they were not thrown in the dumpster. .

Was that in Elsah? I know in Harrisville, NH they are restoring their radial waves, I think with LED bulbs.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

The new fixture I think might be an AEL Autobahn ATB2.

Yep, Elsah. Some people bought them up and some sold theirs on Ebay.

I see the ATB2 a few poles down the road.

Long live Mercury Vapor and Incandescent street lighting!
