Could that line on glass be an old series street lighting wire?

It is - and I was surprised to see they pressed a lowly CD 102 pony into service here.

Saying that just reminded me of someone who told me they'd found a muni out west that actually managed to use ponies to support a 2400V delta distribution system!!! Wish I could remember what town, but that collector said he was out there on a license plate collecting trip, and his discovery of an abandoned line with multiparts nearby reinvigorated his insulator collecting.

Pony insulators? Now there's something I haven't seen on electric power distribution. Must be for truly dinky lines with tiny conductors to fit on such small insulators.

I do recall seeing Hemingray No. 42s on 4160 volt distribution in the past, though.
