Otter Tail Power - Absaraka (rural), ND
The Absaraka Junction substation after the pole with the KPF switch failed - the switch was moved a couple spans north (and is one of the vertical switches they are now using).

On comparison, it seems like the line to Absaraka finally got a neutral, so it may well be that they are beginning to phase out earth-return lines.

Nice shot! I'm glad to see they did some repairwork on the sub but left it in its old configuration. That'll mean it'll be standing for a good long time I hope!

I also like those big Joslyn arresters on the 41.6kV line. Are they 35kV or 50kV rated?

They are likely gonna be in the 50kV class. Some parts of the system have 35kV arresters while others have these bigger arresters.

It doesn't have a fence around it to keep people from getting too close.. It is a neat little substation..

The bottom platform on the sub is about 7 to 8' off the ground.
