Found some more Econolite round-door Bullseye flashers along the 101 at WA-20. Very rural area; all but a couple seemingly re-painted a brighter shade of green than usual (within the last year), and all are incandescent bulbs with an awesome fade-on/fade-off motion. Look to be in great shape, too:

US-101 @ WA-20, Discovery Bay

(full-size photos below; slightly edited to improve clarity)





More round-door beacons: US 12 near Aberdeen.  Then a few intersections west: not a green T but a flashing yellow T?

At an antique store in Aberdeen I found an eight inch single green light for sale for $52.  Didn't buy it because I didn't know where I would put it, but I've never seen working signal equipment for such a low price before.

I found a set of old Eagles on angled mast-arms:
