Thought this was kind of an unusual corner with the long rod insulator in the middle. Actually, is it possible these insulators are older generation on-pole lightning arresters? National Grid used a ton of them.

That long "rod" insulator is a two-piece post. They probably used it to re-inforce the center phase.

Yeah they do indeed. National Grid seems to love using these on their divot arm poles. I however find it strange that this particular line here in SC&G has it on a the middle phase of a corner style pole.
