The main riser bank for this 2400V municipal system while it still stood. The municipal has since upgraded its distribution system to a mostly underground system (and which is very possibly 24.9kV based on the appearance of the few overhead segments).

Current street view: goo.gl/maps/Uq3k5cjjETC2 The spot where the riser bank stood is a clearly visible patch in the parking lot asphalt. The plant is across the street, and one abandoned 2400V pole is still visible on the plant grounds.

Pretty similar - but this has two more circuits.

I love these old riser banks. I wonder if there are any left in other towns?

You have it all there- The newer shielded cable with potheads, weatherhead riser on 2400V, and even a couple of three wire potheads. I could gaze at construction like that all day long..

AR Hudson- There are several towns here in MN that still have riser banks like that by their municipal plants. I've also seen some bit the dust. Most municipals are ditching 2400V delta in favor or 12.5, 13.8 kV, or higher. underground is also big.

Here is one I think you guys will like: binged.it/2bKzyXf Westbrook, MN 2400V delta system. Wadena has a riser bank by their main old 4160V substation: www.ipernity.com/doc/justin.schlueter/25520195 There are others too.
