Hi, after years of interest in street lighting, I am interested in collecting one or two Philips MA60 (later SRS201) lanterns, both with a gear compartment (see http://www.streetlightonline.co.uk/MA60_photographs.htm for example images of what I refer to).

They are quickly disappearing from London, with nearly all of them gone in favour of LED lighting (which is understandable due to energy efficiency).

I am not sure if Highways England or TfL have any new-old stock made redundant by the switch to LED.

Just one serious problem: how am I going to be able to do this legally?

Welcome to Ukastle. In answer to your question, I would suggest reading our Guidance for collectors.

Hi! I'm Z95454 (you can just call me Jack).

I've had an interest in street lighting since I was a kid, watching the SOX warm up is what made me like street lighting.

My username is Z95454 because they're my favourite lantern type. Another reason is because they were installed back in the 80's when I was little and I would always watch them warm-up. They are still installed today and running SOX.

I live in Sandwell in the West Midlands where there is many streets lit by SOX which aren't being replaced anytime soon.

Sandwell still has many Alpha 1's still going. Small number of SOX GEC Turtles aswell.
