    Aldridge traffic systems...

    They supply both LED & incandescant units. Both come with transformers
    installed for 240v operation. The incandescant ones use a 10V 50W globe, but
    look like they should be exchangable with standard driving light / spot
    light type 12V lamps. In the LED units each light (or phase as its known)
    can be powered from 12V AC or DC no problems and they have a built in
    regulator for each phase. from experiance power consumption is ~1.5A @
    12VDC for red & amber and approx 1.9A @ 12VDC for green. the halogen
    ones...well you can work that out for yourself I'm sure.

    By the much did you say you wanted to spend?...LOL

    I've seen some pretty decent new ones in cash converters of all
    places, otherwise could try ebay.

    I've got a very large tree here but need some form of chaser for them.
    I've got similar to this without the stand:

    I was given them to use as garden lighting.

    I saw that ebay listing, If i have the choice, i'd like to get the ones with
    the glass like diffuser that really makes the light stand out. - i've
    already got a 3 channel flasher that is part of the 'cheap' traffic light
    looking things.

    Thanksfor that info, I'm not big on money at the moment, but anywere up to
    $150 for a 2nd hand set, any more than that and I'm pushed to my limits.

    Hi amstereo, pretty sure I know where there are/was some in Adelaide,
    post back to the group if interested, have no idea of price.

    Also Try the Electrical Dept of your Local Council,
    They sometimes will have old ones they will sell..

    Ask your local Traffic Department. Most are phasing out older 240 volt globe
    styles for LED technology. Paramount Browns in Adelaide has heaps, are cheap
    (<$10 per lantern), and will mail Australia wide.
