Yeah, this is the exact same pic that I was referring to in my pic with the newer style ER lights.

Seems like a pair of original poles got saved and reinstalled at one of the MTO's yards. I've seen them at night and I'm not sure if they're 3000K LED or CMH. I'm leaning on LED just since everyone is using LED now.

That particular MTO yard has always been interesting, there's one or two OV-25 remotes still left and a pair of 400w MV Ovalites. I wonder if the MTO purposely kept them up.

Oh cool! Yeah probably LED. Too bad they didn't try to match the lights better. The poles in the MTO yard look shorter than the ones in the pic above. I wonder if they transferred the arms onto new poles? Or had them custom made? (seems like a lot of work just for yard lighting though). Way cool on those oldies. I wonder if they're still operational?

Yeah it seems like the ones they used are the shorter ones in this picture that were mounted on the bridge parapets. It would have been nice to see them with gumballs but the original ones were long gone. At least they didn't stick a regular LED on it lol. I'm not sure if the OV-25 remotes work but I've seen the Ovalites working before. Kinda interesting that the MTO kept them MV after all these years.

If they don't use the MVs often, chances are that maybe they haven't burned out in a long time? I'd imagine if any of them let go they might be replaced with HPS (or LED at this point) but maybe they didn't want orangey-yellow yard lighting lol.

I like the polefab with the dual Ovalites. on the side closer to the 400. Too bad 2 ovalites came down during the MTO`s reno.
