Wonder which took longer - designing or building?

And it's STILL not 100% done - seems there is a clearance issue from the static wire to the point switch. They eventually put up a distribution-size rubber chicken up there and called it good.

That's quite a setup there! Too bad they used those polymer yuk suspensions on the neighboring tower.

Yeah, they're only using the glass for horizontal dead-ends on the line.

Now that's impressive! And it has over 100 glass disks with more still to come!

This is the first of two such switches along this project. They've started building a second one for the other side of the muni loop.
