Good to know. They do resemble lanterns commonly seen in Europe.

LED street lights are bad. Some look good though. HID is better.
Please, watch out for the future. It's not looking good.

Here’s an old GE Form 406 Fluorescent fixture that is near the Manchester/Auburn Traffic circle, right where I played my baseball games! How on earth did I not spot it out earlier!

It is! I wonder if it works at all. Also note the decent amount of MV NEMA rentals that light the parking lot as well.

I found some hack job done by a contractor hired by Caltrans.

Apparently when they were installing a row of GE M-250A2s on Firestone Blvd alongside the I-5 Freeway, it appears the contractor not only installed 200W lamps in 150W HPS luminaries, but literally cut holes in the reflectors so that the 200W lamps would fit as they appeared to not understand how the sockets are adjustable on the fixtures to accommodate longer lamps.

Those don't look like CalTrans-owned lights. They appear to be city-owned as even though they're along a freeway, doesn't mean they're owned by CalTrans. CalTrans never used M-250A2s as far as I know, and plus, they have luminaires made to their specs and I doubt they'd do something like this. CalTrans never used 150w HPS lights either, though possibly for the underpass lights.

Hurts to look at, that's for sure. Wonder what they're trying to do there?

Oops I should have mentioned they’re city owned, sorry for the confusion.

The contractor Caltrans hired for the nearby bridge construction as well as the widening for this portion of the freeway did install them as part of the whole project. Basically one vendor does all the lighting, for both the state and city owned under contract with Caltrans to streamline the work so the city doesn’t have to put their poles up themselves.

Yeah, I think whoever put them up was kinda dumb.

I saw some saddening sights on google earth today. I was exploring around Hampton NH today to see some old lights on streetview and I surely saw what I asked for, I saw a MV Crescent moon and just down the street was a remote ballast Westinghouse OV20. Why are these sights saddening you ask? Well Hampton went LED in late 2019 and the Affinity lights probably killed them all off. It’s possible they got lazy and kept the OV20 but the crescent moon is definitely gone. That OV20 is probably the last known remote ballast fixture in Exeter-Hampton electric area and that crescent moon is one of two known in Exeter-Hampton territory. I will have to go back and see for sure whether they’re still there or not.

Long Live SOX!


Re: Google Street View Finds « Reply #73 on: February 02, 2022, 06:39:01 PM » Author: AgentHalogen_87
I have found what I call the Soul survivour. It is a modern beta 5 on a steel pole. Not too impressive in itself. But look around the surrounding streets. Literally everything else has been converted to LED. This is the only SOX left. There are a few vehicles parked at the side of the road; I think they may have been what saved the lantern from the bucket truck. I visited the street about a year ago and it was still there, burning brightly at night. Sidenote: that trip to the Beta 5 got my my MA50. That's what I call good luck.

Kempthorne Avenue, September 2020 (source). I say this because the REVO Hyperion A model used to have a significant presence in some main roads of Islington and Hackney (both London) until the late 1990s, and may be one of the reasons why I got interested in street lights.
