first signal has an Econolite body and a modular neon unit made by ICC. The second signal,
my favorite, has
tubes that are bent in the shape of the commands.
You can see more about either one by clicking on each
picture. The third one has an identical body to the first one, but has
exposed tubes bent in the shape of the commands like the second signal.
Now here are some other neon pedestrian signals
that are not in The Traffic Signal Museum's collection.
Crouse Hinds made at least a couple different
designs of neon pedestrian signals.
One was a rectangular shape similar to the Econolites above, but one was a long
horizontal design that wasn't seen as much.
Some of these were known to have been used in the Detroit area in the 60's.
Unlike Econolite signals, the WALK indication only lit up green. The sequence is
believed to have been...
WALK > FLASHING DONT & FLASHING WALK for
clearance > DONT WALK
The Youtube video below supports this.
This Youtube video
shows these signals in use.
Fast forward to about 1:20 to see them.
there is a pole partially blocking the signal, but it is flashing DONT &
WALK for the clearance interval.
