Here's a close up shot of the 'Transformer Pole'. Here, you can see how CL&PCo. ran the transformer leads down the top alley arm on small wire holder insulators.

Also note the secondary on the crossarm. This type of construction is very hard to find on CL&P's grid nowadays.

Jesse Lor, SW Ohio Lines, André J.(Lineman80), Tony Glen have particularly liked this photo

There used to be a very similar pole on one of the muni lines back when it was 2400V. I don't pass through that part of town that often (it's a nicer part of town, just don't get down that way often) so will have to check and see if it was replaced or modified after the 13.8kV upgrade.

Any updates on that pole perhaps? It would be interesting to see what it looks like now.
