Do these fade in and out when changing lights? since I think they might have been retrofitted with LEDs since incandescent signals should get warm enough to melt off the snow.

@ Joseph

These are 3M M131's. No idea how hot they get. I think they are incandescent.

EDIT: @ Joseph (again)

It was 28°F on that day, from what I found out on an almanac.

I also discovered this: http://www.engadget.com/2009/12/17/led-traffic-lights-dont-melt-snow-do-cause-accidents/

I collect exit signs, preferably vintage ones.

I also have a little bit of a thing for light bulbs, too. Of course, hoarding them due to the incandescent bulb ban.
