Here is a close view of the 46kV mid-line deadend pole. These are placed every 20 or 30 spans for storm bracing.

I've seen photos of segments of lines completely wiped out before. Upon further examination, it seems as if there wasn't any type of storm structures / bracing. Nice photos too!

Thanks! Storm bracing certainly is important for transmission construction. While this line won't be seeing any ice storms, there's still enough chance it could see some strong winds that could take something like what you described out.

East River Electric had one pole exactly like this (well, almost - no distribution line) along the 69kV line south of town - but a new 115kV armless line is along the same alignment now.

Darn! It would've been a neat pole to have seen.
