When I took this picture, I thought the transformer was a step-up from the 2400V singlephase system in Tracy, but now I see that it's a heavy transformer for the fairgrounds instead. The higher voltage line (I'm going to assume it's 19.9kV) continued on to one other building on the fairgrounds.

This is an interesting setup. It appears that the 2.4kV ungrounded single-phase line runs beneath the higher voltage single-phase line for at least a few spans to the left. Not too often when I see two different voltages on a pole like this on a single-phase system.

The cutouts look a little small for a 34.5kV system on the higher voltage line, but the insulators are certainly big enough. Any 25kV-class distribution on KCP&L's system at all?

We'd need to bug Charles Robinson as this is ex-Missouri Public Service territory, his "hometown" power company.
