Montana-Dakota Utilities - New England, ND

Montana-Dakota Utilities - New England, ND
(swiped from Google Maps street view)

Was looking at the current city hall building in this southwestern ND town as it was the former municipal utility's power plant and saw this when I swung the view around - a three-bank of Westinghouse transformers and one is even a REPAINTED one!

If New England wasn't so far out of the way, it definitely would be worth exploring to find remnants of the Aaby Light & Power system or the former municipal distribution system - the poles visible are all MDU's current 4kV spec.

(the city was so named as many original residents came from that region)

How about that...not too often when I come across the "yucked" Westies! Good catch.

Also interesting seeing how they named the town "New England"....I'll tell you that from my observations, there are lots of Westies in New England! ; )
