Bannock County, Idaho August 07, 1999.

Railroad pole line taken along the UP Pocatello Subdivision just north of Lava Hot Springs, Idaho.

The UP Pocatello Subdivision was loaded with CD 152 California insulators in a couple of different colors. It followed all along Old Highway 30 between Lava Hot Springs to Bancroft until it met up with US Highway 30. I was able to pick about two dozen of the CD 152 California insulators in various colors.

This shot shows the pole line with three CD 152 California insulators on the bottom crossarm.

Scanned from a 35mm negative using a Pentax PZ-10 camera. Pentax FA 28-80mm f/3.5-4.7 lens.
