It's actually an MI26... but all the same: EH?! What's all that about?! And they've mounted it with the lamp cap down, so it'll burn out sooner.

A1 SOX to be replaced by Airtrace 2s

Romford has suffered a big invasion of Airtraces - all the MAs and some older SON lanterns such as ZX3s and SGS203s lighting its ring road have been changed over for them. Arc and Iridium casual replacements, however, haven't been changed over, so Havering are obviously hell bent on upgrading its lighting! The old columns (Fabrikats with very long brackets from the 70s) have been reused however, despite the Airtraces' much better optics! I'll get some pictures of them soon!

In Clifford Road, Walthamstow are a couple of Thorn Alpha 8s (one MKII, pictured, one MKIII, behind the MKII installation, but not pictured as there are still some Alpha 8s of that type surviving around Blackhorse Road) installed on Thorn aluminium columns. Neither of the installations worked when I passed them at night a couple of weeks ago, but there are no new installations on the road which have replaced them, so they can't be abandoned - they probably just need a lamp change but the council has forgotten about them. That's if they are council-owned - this road leads into the rear of a nearby Homebase car park, so they may be privately owned rather than council-owned. Who knows?

Yes, both are lit at night. It is quite possible that there used to be a pole bracket lantern there before, and that during the 1970s replacement scheme that it was just left and somehow remained in service, being replaced just like a normal replacement. There is another location in the borough where there is a pole mounted lantern on a road lit with columns, and the pole mounted lantern serves no purpose, yet it is still serviced.

I don't know... because all the new columns will require the power to be transferred across. I'll have to have a look at the environment around the proposed location of the T columns again.

The T could mean Transfer, i.e. transfer of the electrics from the old column to the new.

Very odd - Sometimes new developments make councils or contractors install lanterns alongside or opposite the new street that are the same as the majority of the rest of the road. So it seems to me that the estate was the reason for the SOX lantern to be installed. As for the ZX1, could another lantern and bracket been used on that telegraph pole before? So the lighting was upgraded a few years ago as the supply was still there? Are they also both lit at night?

This and all others in this street have now been replaced with black ZX2s running Cosmo lamps. What a difference it makes as night and how better the driving conditions are. Although prehaps not the best performing lantern I will miss the Alpha8 if all are replaced as they were a key lantern in this area as with the MRL6.

The large AC Ford Control Box houses the fuse for the street lighting switch wire. However it is rarely used these days as all lanterns have there own control boxes with cut-outs in. That is the small white box just above the large green one. The taped up cell can also be seen - this dates from when group switched SOX dominated.

Now most of the overhead network is wired with insulated cables and no street lighting line so each lantern is individually switched.

London Road is seeing its Fabrikat columns lit with ZXs, Iridiums and SGS203s replaced with these seriously curvy installations with what look like Philips Citysoul lanterns installed on them. These have been here since about March and the old columns still haven't been removed. The column to the right fitted with an Iridium looks to have been missed too!

yes the lamp life is very short. The street was equipped with these lanterns and biiger ones which was been used maybe for days when the prime minister came to there I think.
