  • BG&E 33kV & 13.8kV - Laurel, MD

    A 33 kV line can be seen with a 13.8 kV underbuild here.

  • BG&E 33kV & 13.8kV - Laurel, MD

    More 33 kV/13.8 kV distribution poles. The first pole features a capacitor bank.

  • BG&E 33kV & 13.8kV - Laurel, MD

    This pole features a riser on the 13.8 kV circuit.


  • BG&E 13.8kV - Laurel, MD

    Here is a 13.8 kV distribution pole featuring a second circuit on aerial cable.

  • BG&E 33kV & 13.8kV - Laurel, MD

    Here's another view of the pole featured in the previous photo, with a 33 kV/13.8 kV line in the background.

  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    An unusually tall corner pole can be seen here on the 34.5 kV line. I wonder what it could have held originally?


  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    An original pole can be seen here. I suspect it was put up in the 1920s or 1930s. A quick look at the construction style will reveal close similarity with the ancient West Penn Power poles with Hemingray "PROVO" glass insulators: www.flickr.com/photos/co…

  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    A few replacement poles can be seen in the background here. They are quite a bit taller than the originals. Also note the crossarm-mounted neutral on the 12.47 kV underbuild.

  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    Looks like this pole got some new crossarms, featuring new 'yuck' polymer posts on the 34.5 kV.


  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    Here's a nice early 7.2 kV single phase transformer pole featuring secondaries on a crossarm. The 34.5 kV/12.47 kV trunk line runs in the background.

  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    Some flimsy slack span construction featuring toothpick brackets. A 34.5 kV line with a 12.47 kV underbuild runs in the background.

  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    The pole in front features a replacement post insulator on the middle phase of the 34.5 kV line.


  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    Some nice construction here!

  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    More original poles from before WWII.

  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    A replacement pole with 'yuck' posts can be seen in this picture.


  • Potomac Edison 34.5kV & 12.47kV - Charles Town, WV

    Two 34.5 kV circuits meet up here.

  • Appalachian Power 12.47kV - Christiansburg, VA

    Some poles on this line feature longer crossarms and large braces, making me think this was a 34.5 kV transmission line originally.

  • Appalachian Power 12.47kV - Christiansburg, VA

    Here's another weird pole that looks to have been repurposed from an old 34.5 kV line.
