I just love the shape of these GEC tubes, bring back fond memories when we had them all over my town, in the 70s and 80s.

Bring back Fluorescent and SOX Streetlights. Keep magnetic ballasts.

Length: 900mm (~3 foot), does that mean they fit into a 30W fluorescent fixture without modification (exept gear of course)?

Unfortunately the production of Linear SLI/H ended in the 1980s.

Yeah its a pity because they're awesome lamps
You may find some NOS on ebay, but they'd be expensive.

these lamps are amazing, they are warm to the touch, easy on your eyes (glare wise), and NEARLY completely monochromatic
the reason why I said NEARLY is because it has a little bit of blue in the spectrum, how do i know that? I had a blue water bottle and I walked near one and decided to look through the bottle to see if the light would come through, and it did. Although it appeared 97% dimmer it still went through. Yes the lamp is predominantly yellow it has a hint of blue, I have no idea Where it comes from

Both the 140watt and 200watt get very hot, as the heat from the discharge tube is quite close to the outer jacket, (despite them having an infared coating)!
As for the water bottle thing, I tend to notice green will show up best under a LPS lamp.
