Here's a nice M-2926 Ohio Brass multipart on a 41.6kV line. That is the ONLY M-2926 I know of on OTP's system, let alone in SD.

It's rated in the 50kV class, so I have no clue as to how it wound up here since the glaze color suggests 1920s / 1930s manufacture and this leg of the 41.6kV system did not go up until after 1952 (and which replaced two radial lines - one was 12.5kV and the other was 13.2kV). This COULD have been a mutual aid deal or the contractor who put up the line had an extra in their shop.
