Sylvania Boston

Sylvania Boston

Click to view full size image

At long last I have found myself a Sylvania 'Boston', this one being in catenary cable suspended format (Have a look at the previous photo to this one in this album). While I was out of town for a week about twenty of these catenary suspended Boston's got removed from the one stretch of roadway in my hometown of Toowoomba and were replaced with pole mounted Sylvania Roadsters (see these new Roadsters here, which show a couple of remaining Boston's in the background that have been left untouched - now removed and replaced too). Fortunately I was able to rescue one from this traffic light intersection here and here after discovering the remaining handful of catenary suspended street lighting in town was to be removed and replaced with pole mounted Sylvania Roadsters.

This Boston is a 150 watt HPS.

Here and here are photos of my own Sylvania Roadsters, in aeroscreen and bowl form.

They were still looking good and working well last time i saw them, why did they remove them. they beat the roadster any day. they must have a hate-on for catinery suspended lanterns nowdays? OH&S crap?

Bring back Fluorescent and SOX Streetlights. Keep magnetic ballasts.

I remember selling these when I used to work for Rexel Australia. But by then it was made by Pierlite using the old GEC equipment for Rexel.

Traffic signals & street lighting engineer. Please bring SOX/LPS back Downunder!!
