Telegraph pole with glass insulators: CD 154 Hemingray-42s, CD 152 Hemingray 40s, clear CD 162 Hemingray-19, brown porcelain signal "hats" still in place. Common, but how much longer will these be found "in the air" before all the old open-wire lines are completely dismantled? I took this picture on August 17, 2001 along the CSX (former Monon Railroad) crossing at Grant Line Road in New Albany, Indiana. UPDATE (June 4, 2012) This pole line has been dismantled.....not sure exactly when, but within the last year or two.
