Another view of the likely MSP-era substation and the 33kV line coming in (or leaving). I'm not even sure it's still in use. Driving to Forsyth for pics would be a "hike and a half" for me, so this would do for now.

That would be an awesome sub to check out...not too much in the way of subs that old still standing. I don't know if it's old enough to be from before 1942, but it's certainly been there for well over 50 years, probably over 60.

I followed the 33kv coming from this sub, goes out some distance,"ends" a mile west (two of the lines still connect),crosses a highway, pole transformer connected to the line (two hot wires),and continues on (hard to follow). These transformers step the 57kv down to this 33kv. Old transformers here are pretty small for stepping down to 33kv.
