A "crossarm job" on an idle 13.8kV branch line. If the customer ever wants service brought back to this location, Xcel will likely have to replace every pole in order to get it up to 19.9kV standards and the line back in good condition since the main line got rebuilt from 23.9 to 34.5kV some time ago.

I wonder how old this branch line must be? That pole certainly looks to be ancient! I've seen CL&P do largely the same thing on some of their 4.8kV branch lines when the ends of the crossarms rotted as well.
