~8/3/16: I recently assembled my own "homemade" group operated switch out of various pieces of hardware and metal I had lying around. Since this is my first attempt ever at building such, it looks pretty crappy but I'm sure as time progresses I'll find better waves to improve such work. I will upload a photo soon to show what it looks like. I plan on putting the switch on a pole and using a "control pipe" to open / close the switch similar to real life poles.

May 3, 2016~5/2/16: Seems that Xcel Energy paid a recent visit to this structure to update some equipment: www.ipernity.com/doc/331527/34174431 I have no clue as to what they did on this structure, but considering its age I hope they didn't replace it with a clamp brace & modern bank. Will keep on the look out to see if anything happens. I wonder if this pole is in possible danger as well since both poles are literally a few spans from each other: www.ipernity.com/doc/331527/34174411
