109b. Sandtoft Trolleybus Museum, near Doncaster (continued). This page concentrates on the side road lanterns at the museum...there are quite a few of them!

Quite a few of the side road lanterns are installed on 15 ft Stewart and Lloyd tubular steel columns - firstly, we have these two Bleeco 'Sunstar' lanterns:

Sadly the refractor on the second example is slightly damaged:

The lantern and most of the bracket of one column were completely missing:

The next column along featured a Coughtrie 'PW' fitting - usually used for domestic outdoor lighting.

Adjacent the old bicycle display is a lantern which resembles an AC Ford AC424, although I am not entirely sure if this is what it is.

A single Revo Prefect is installed near the entrance.

A GEC Z5560 is next.

The teardrop lantern to the right is modern but was fitted to what looked like quite an old bracket.

A similar but different lantern (a Z5580) was wall-mounted on a low bracket. What would normally be the 'front' of this lantern is pointing to the left in these pictures.

Nearby is an early Thorn Beta 4 with a refractor bowl.

A couple of ex-gas lanterns are also present - these are fitted to cast iron gas columns. The first has the type of refractor bowl more regularly seen fitted to some Revo top-entry lanterns.

Notice the very spindly ladder bars!

A large AC Ford box is attached to the base of this column in order to accommodate cable terminations.

The other ex-gas lantern is fitted with a different type of bowl. Sadly part of the canopy is damaged.
