I know of some Westinghouse OV-25 silverliners near me, if I can save them, I'll give one to you.
As for a HPS GE M-400A, I know a person who can possibly hook you up with one.

Thank you! If we meet up sometime, maybe we can exchange some lights if you can save those. There are some M-400As on a street behind my house that is currently being converted to LED, so I’m currently trying to save those.

My updated list as of 28/07/2020:

A 60W linear SLI/H sodium lamp

A pearl glass 80W or 125W mercury vapour lamp

A 5ft 80W BC-cap fluorescent tube

An MAT/V medium pressure mercury tungsten-ballasted lamp (missed out on one in an eBay auction not long ago  :'()

A genuine ballast for our 10W SOX lamp, also one for our 200W GEC SLI/H.


It's been a successful week for lampses:
We can scratch the 5ft BC tube of our list, it was like waiting for a bus. We waited ages for one, then three come along  :lol:
Also we now have a pearl MB/U lamp in our collection  :mv:
And thanks to a fellow collector we have the proper fitting for a 10W SOX lamp.  :lps: Though we have had it for a while now.

We have three of them in our collection.  :bulbman:

A whole street lit by them in different colours would be a wonderful sight at Christmas.  8)

I am thinking I might also want some 125w SLI/H lamps in my collection so that I can retrofit a 2 foot fluorescent fixture to LPS.

No such thing as a 125W SLI/H. 140W is the nearest to that. Easiest lamp to ballast, at least on 240V, as it runs from a 90W SOX leak transformer. And they're the same size as the 200W, 3ft long.

Actually, sailormoon_01_uk knows of such a lamp and those are 2 feet long and were made by GEC.

Here is what Colin Grimes quotes about 125w SLI/H lamps:

“The most Rarer Sli/H Lamps I know of are the GEC 125 watt which was 2ft long, 175 (the same length as the 140/160/200w sizes) and 310 watt ratings which was 5ft long, and the Airfield/Runway Lighting Version of the 60 and 200w SLI/H lamps for some SLI/H Lamp james hooker has see HERE.”

Good thought for the color MH lights-use them at Christmas-I had the same thought-The only source I see for these bulbs is Venture Lighting-they make them only on special order.70,150W DE,400W,1000W Probe start.Magenta,Blue,yellow,green.Venture says on their website the lamps were used mostly for custom outdoor lighting for resorts and places in Los Vegas.The color lamps are no longer listed in their printed catalogs or websites.You had to special order them.Any other sources I don't know of.
