I spent part of a cold and rainy Saturday checking out a nearby junkyard that specializes in tractors. They had a few old cars, trucks, vans, and a WWII half-track when I was there 5 years ago, so I wanted to see what was available and useful. I wondered if there might be a Superior school bus, but no luck. I took some pictures, so check out the pictures past the ones on here.
Picture 1: Interior switches - a battery switch built into the dash and labeled pull knobs for the beacon ray and siren light on this old fire truck. Both devices are gone, but the labels are neat and the battery switch may be useful to someone.
Pic 2. there are three of the red lamp, mounted with two bolts, and two of the white, although the second is damaged.
Pic 3. All these would be available. Not sure what the light is though.
Pic 4. There may be more than one of these- on a 50's school bus
Pic 5. School bus lens - any other uses?
Pic 6. Another bus lens - again, same question
Here's (http://www.flickr.com/photos/15944113@N03/sets/72157627673057201) the link to more pictures.
All things are for sale. I won't be going back for about 10 days, but I've been given ballpark ideas on prices: $5-10 on lenses, $10-$20 on lights, $30-40 on moving lights (Orange ones). PM me is something catches your eye.

Since I took detailed pictures, here are some more
Pic 1: There are three (total) of these orange revolving lights on an early 70's Chevy tow truck, and another of the spots on the other side of the truck.
Pic 2. Different tow truck, only one light with different shape.
Pic 3. Inside the back of a fire truck, on top of the cabinet these fire extinguisher holders look ideal for O2 tanks as well, plus they screw in so should come out ok.
Pic 4. Rear lights of this truck (actually, there's no cab/frame, just the old body of the fire truck. These lights are in similar condition on the other side, so another one of each of the lenses/lights.
Pic 5. Guide light mounted on a tractor. Looks decent.
Again, let me know if you know more/can ID anything or want me to get it for you. Owner's ballpark prices listed above.
