how much power?! 2000w HQL AND 10,000w XBO - If we had those things on our motorways nowadays we'd have aliens thinking they'd found a landing strip!
The lantern looks like a retro 1980's cassette recorder 'boombox' turned over on its side!

I've done a bit of searching and I think they might be Philips Speedstar lanterns. See the link below:

well I don't know if anybody else here has, but I certainly haven't seen anything quite as strange as this - or that burns 8 lamps!!

LOL  sadly I have never seen it lit. You can imagine how  rare these lanterns are now.
Its new version which is still today available (Siteco Sistellar Maxi) has still 6 lamps ! ;-)
In the sixtys in Germany was been many very big post tops to see. ( From HQL, SOX, Xenon and FT ). I will show some more rarities here. Maybe in the UK was been similar ones (?)

What a strang looking lantern!! When I look at this, I feel that it should actually be a Seattle-style radio tower - and there should be little people inside it walking around!

I take it this is Germany's version of the Giant Post Top.... especially with EIGHT lamps inside!

Some weird new lanterns were installed over the subways leading to and from the A12 Eastern Avenue at Newbury Park about a month ago, replacing some rather weathered Phosco P567s and a few casual replacement SGS203s. One can be seen in this very crisp, springy shot basking in the sunlight. I've no idea what make they could be as I haven't seen anything like them before - they're certainly not the prettiest of things either! Anyone have any ideas what make and model they could be?

Not all of them - some are still bearing their original MRL6s, strangely enough! Most of the slip road columns still have their original lanterns too! I can't help but think that this scheme has been somewhat piecemeal...

Yup the Alpha 8 isn't the original lantern. Knowing Enfield, I reckon the original lantern was a GEC Z9554M

This particular part of the Green Lanes scheme is in the London Borough of Enfield as the lantern choice is the Arc.

I've seen these working at night - definitely Cosmopolis (or MH) lamps. The Evolo is Harringey's new staple lantern.

Another GR200 on the A406. This will be replaced very soon as the lighting on the other side of the road has been removed and replacement columns (without lanterns) have been installed.

The A406/Harringay Green Lanes junction is home to this monster of a bracket with an Alpha 8 installed. Judging by the rusty condition of the column, I would say the Alpha 8 isn't the original lantern and probably replaced a GR200, as other columns like this around the junction have that lantern installed.

Harringay Green Lanes is seeing all its Alpha 8s by the shops replaced with post-top Arcs. A pretty unnecessary scheme in my view, as the Alpha 8s still look very new and there are some comparatively scruffy installations further down the road which could be replaced instead!
