I found this pictures while looking for images of an Excalibur lightbar. ... otostream/ ... otostream/

It look like 4 rotators with half-cylinder-filters and a diamond-mirror in the middle and between the rotators. You can see alleys, intersections and takedowns, too. Mounting feet seem to be the newer ones.

Does anyone have more information about the configuration of that lightbars? Maybe I want to build one in that configuration for my collection.

I have a whole whack of TPS photos somewhere, I will check later tonight.


I got an amber Excalibur just some minutes ago from I think I never saw one on ebay here in Germany since I collect lightbars. They are very rare.

So far my luck. Now the fun begins, until that bar looks like the one from the Toronto Police. :D

So...does that make blue an emergency light. In other words, illegal for operators of eqiuipment, that at one time were legal, to run them?

WOW I just remember snow removal was the only vehicals allowed to run blue, with red steady marker lights to the rear.

Ya I know, SNAP into the 2000's.

I still run blue on my plow. And the lightbar on my truck is red to the rear, but i usually flip my lightbar down to make blue roof beacon visible

And I thought seeing blue on POVs for fire as well as on the police cars in PA was odd....

Top: 5 Rotators - 2 outers slow, 3 inners fast, 2 diamond mirrors. Center rotator is split red/blue. They are switching the outer blue rotator to red on most cars I have seen in for service.

As you stated: Bottom: intersections, alleys, 2 takedowns on each side, 6 head arrowstick amber to the back - with the exception that only traffic cars have an arrowstick, usually 8 head, wired to a federal signal controller SMC1, or SMC5. Regular patrol cars have 4 rear amber heads on a code3 710 flasher.

I'll see if I can get you some photos of the guts of the bar.
