Me again  :lol: I have only a few more now... These could be Urbis Albany they are located at Loftus, High Street, may also be DW Windsor Strands. I am interested in the one on the left, I again have no idea what it is, there are many similar lanterns, this one was at Saltburn, Station Street No idea, Saltburn, Milton Street at the top of Emerald Street and the next lantern down the street to the west. possibly a GEC ZD10839? Saltburn, Marine Parade near Saltburn House maybe a GEC ZD10598 or GEC Z5673 and a GEC Z5730 or GEC Z5698U? At Skelton, Buckfast Road. Identified as a Phosco P107 and a GEC Z5718. Roundabout outside Guisborough to the south east Roundabout outside Bainton. Identified as a GEC Z3430. Humber Bridge, Hull Side This is on the M62, west of the farm in the middle of the road, they start off sharing columns with Urbis ZX3 but eventually all columns have this lantern, in my memory it was an Philips SGS 204 but its obviously not, I've seen some people here talk about bricks before I signed up but this isn't one of those and I'm pretty sure this is a SON lantern. I have never seen it anywhere else apart from the M62. Identified as an Urbis ZX4.

That's everything I had to identify (in the UK), I had made attempts with the two pages I was given and tried to look into lighting on the M62 but it wasn't fruitful.

I do have questions about lighting in Denmark and to some extent Croatia, I see Denmark has a lot of what I have accidentally (while looking up thorn rivieras and some alpha lanterns) identified to be Thorn Victors. Denmark also seems to have a lot of suspended lighting and until recently some nice florescent (maybe SOX) lanterns too if anyone can help with those?

It's a shame that we don't use Thorn Victors here, my biggest problem with LED in the UK is that they all look mostly the same and have no character where as the Thorn Victor looks quite nice.  :P How hard would it be to put LEDs in some Philips MA, Eleco GR or GEC Z8600?  :lol:

Thank you, I think you're right about the first 2 but I am unsure about the last, I couldn't find any information on it, while looking up the ZX4 it seems that that name is used for a large post top lantern and maybe this one, I'm sure I've seen it or a similar one used at zebra crossings.

I hope someone else is around that can help with the rest too.  :)

Ah sorry for the confusion, the Schreder TX was sold here as the Urbis ZX4.  The lantern extremely common in Belgium (it’s called the TX there) but hardly exists here which is why I naturally call it by the Belgian name (same goes for other lanterns that are extremely common abroad but rare here e.g. the Indalux Viento / Abacus Camino).

It comes in all shapes and sizes and is usually post top, which is why the Google images may look different, but it’s definitely a TX/ZX4.

It's no problem man  :)

At some point I'm gonna try again to identify the other lanterns myself but I'd greatly appreciate any input anyone has

All teardrop lanterns look the same to me, I’m useless at identifying lanterns like those.  Although by chance I’ve found out that this lantern is a CU Phosco/Phosware P107 :).

I'd check in DW Windsor Strand as the teardrop psudo old fashioned lamps.

I'm back! I've added what things are identified as to the list. I've done a bit of research since those months but I'm still none the wiser.
