Last time I was in Chicago, in 2017, I found surprisingly few LED heads within Chicago city limits, except for 51watt LED for lanes which were formerly CMH. The same 51watts were on all roads in one immediate suburb (Schiller Park)

But I did find one 180 watt Leotek(??) replacing a residential 250w crimefighter. That 180w LED is really for major roads or thruways. See attached.
Nice pics @lights*plus!

Forgot to mention that lights in downtown Chicago (2017) were indeed 1kw HPS as well as 400w. See the #2 & #3 pics in https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161846

I wonder how many of these unique lights ended up into collections. I know a few members including myself have the 1960s MV M-250R based version, but I wonder how many of the later M-400A based and M-250A based ones got saved when they got replaced with LED.

Made a mounting board to put our 140W SLI/H linear sodium lamp on. It's only a temporary solution, so we'll post photos once the job is complete.

I forgot about that one . I've actually seen that on car shows where they import cars from the U.S. to the U.K. They always talk of replacing the American headlamps so the car will be legal for U.K. roads .
