What Models of Lights Have You Seen?

Postby freebrickproductions » Sat Jun 03, 2017 2:34 am

Another non-traditional poll, but it's another question that I've been curious about: what crossing lights have you seen, whether on display and/or in use? Gate lights can be included in this as well, along with wig-wags (both kinds). As long as it functions as a visual means of warning drivers, then it counts, as long as you've seen the light(s) yourself in person. So nothing you've seen only on videos, pictures, and/or Google Street View.

Here's my list (ones I haven't seen lit up are marked with an *, any "generations" are named as such by yours truly, and aren't official, except for LEDs as they were named as such by Mike H.; different generations/styles of the same light-head are also linked to example pictures I've taken of the light head):
8 inch lights:
US&S
Safetran
RACO
GRS XC (IIRC, that's the model for the standard GRS 8 inch light)
GRS Lex-C
WCH
WRRS
WRRS Cast-iron*
Federal Signals
WABCO
Harmon
Modern Industries
Transport Products Corp.

12 inch lights:
WCH 1st Generation
WCH 2nd Generation
WCH 3rd Generation

Modern Industries 1st Generation
Modern Industries 2nd Generation

It's a non-traditional one. Basically you just respond with what you've seen. Similar to this thread of mine from earlier this year:
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3697

Also, any visual warning device counts as a light, not just lights used at American crossings. :Tongue1:
