A phase-by-phase stepup converting a 23.9kV line (at the sub) to 34.5kV (heading to the western end of the NSP system in SD) with a "spare" parked on the line (far right unit) so it can be hooked up in a pinch.

That's some nice, sturdy construction there! I like how they included a spare can and used two poles per transformer,

Xcel put a switch on the front pole (and took out the 19.9/13.8kV can) and wired up the "spare" in place of the one that was removed.
