Westinghouse Lumiline 40W white lamps, virtually NOS!

These found their way in the fluorescents bin. They obviously have been mistaken for fluorescent tubes!

The most surprising thing though is... they all work! Needless to say it's amazing to see a lit lumiline IRL for the first time!

they are canadian made, our westinghouse lumilines at least 60s-80s ones in the usa dont have the vertical etch.

Shocked Very nice! Sockets for these are still available on eBay but I'm not sure about the fixture.

A side note, one of the Canadian Tires here sold GE 40w Lumilines (in the fluorescent section lol) up to 2009.

Never seen I guess almost as rare as hen's teeth, how are they connected?

so these run on line voltage or do they need a ballast of some sorts?

These should run on straight 120v.

Interestingly when the F15T8 was in development during the 1930s. They proposed using Lumiline end caps on them (probably to save production costs) and running them with instant start ballasts.

They later switched the bi-pin base we know today as the early instant start ballasts were too lossy for use and probably since they were eating lamps.
