  • Xcel Energy, St. Cloud, MN

    This ancient transformer will be coming down soon.

  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    Finally got a decent photo of this open delta transformer bank.

  • Locomotive

    A 70 year old diesel locomotive that was recently brought to town and is now on display at the rail museum in Waite Park. I figured I better get some photos before they repaint it. : ( www.sctimes.com/story/news/local/2018/01 /12/delivery-70-year-old-lo…


  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    A transformer bank with a matched set of LM 277 volt cans

  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    A typical 34.5 kV to 4 kV step down bank. I would guess this was one was installed probably early to mid 90s. All the 4 kV in the south side of town remaining is on step downs. There are many of them.

  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    A corner pole on a 34.5 kV line.


  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    Can't get enough of these older transformer poles.

  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    Another old transformer pole.

  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    Yet another old transformer pole.


  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    Still another..

  • Xcel Energy, St. Cloud, MN

    Xcel ditched the ancient GE transformer on the next pole and put this one up. Note that in all the modernness, the strain dead ends remain! www.ipernity.com/doc/justin.schlueter/41 030890

  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    An open delta bank with a hefty LM lighting can.


  • Northern States Power, St. Cloud, MN

    Never good to see a bank like this idled. Both lines are 4 kV. www.ipernity.com/doc/justin.schlueter/30 830973

  • Truman Public Utilities, Truman, MN

    A transformer bank seen on this multi circuit line. The top circuit is 12.5 kV coming from the main 69 kV substation.

  • Truman Public Utilities, Truman, MN

    A nice old fashioned open delta transformer bank.


  • Truman Public Utilities, Truman, MN

    A nifty old transformer pole next to the 69 kV and 12.5 kV lines as they go into the substation.

  • Truman Public Utilities, Truman, MN

    The Truman Public Utilities Municipal Power Plant. Like many small municipals in the area, they have their own diesel plant. You can make out some of the outgoing risers behind the buildings.

  • Stearns Electric Association, St. Wendel, MN

    This is kind of weird, a few years ago, Stearns Electric went through this tiny town and put the main line underground, yet left the transformer poles.
