Well I'd like some, but $102.85 for the shipping is a little OTT  Shocked

If anybody gets some and could send me a couple slightly cheaper, I'd appreciate it Grin

When I look at that page, the only shipping quote it gives is for $102.85.

Trying to upload a screenshot, but the system isn't letting me for some reason, I'll try later.

Found another seller with the same lamps, more for the lamps but a LOT less for the shipping  Cheesy

Right, I think uploading the screenshot problem is fixed, this is what I get on the eBay page, check the shipping costs  Shocked

These were common in 12" size traffic signals back in the day. I guess since LED traffic signals have pretty much killed off incandescent traffic signals at this point, I'm not that surprised to see these 135w being cleared out like this. I think even the collectors tend to use something dimmer and less power hungry like the 60w or 69w traffic signal lamps. Costs quite a bit to ship to Canada too, around $90 for the shipping. I have a couple of the same lamps already so I'll pass on these.

There's still a decent amount of incandescent signals in use in my area.

Pretty neat to hear that. I wonder if they still use incandescent to reduce the risk of snow sticking on the lenses. Over here the changeout from incandescent to LED started in 2003 with the last incandescent being removed around 2015. Only a few small towns still have incandescent signals left.

I think the signal contractors here have since cleared out their stock of signal incandescent lamps. I got some 60w, 69w, 116w and 135w lamps NIB at the Restore a few years ago. 60w and 69w were for 8" signals, 116w for 12" pedestrian signals and 12" arrows and 135w for the 12" balls.
