Warehouse Wednesday: OLE without the wires

OLE Fitting 1

Heading into the office, I've been gradually watching overhead electrification taking place near Stamford. One striking feature is the posts being up, but with the arms (I'm sure there is a technical term for these) pointing along the track. 

 I kept meaning to take a photo, there is a handy layby to pull in to, but realised that the time had come on a damp day a couple of weeks ago. This is silly, because I'd passed there a week earlier in the sunshine...

Anyway, I've never seen this scene before and it might make an interesting modelling challenge for someone. At least you can leave out the complicated bits and those tricky wires!

Passing that way regularly I've been struck by just how odd it looks
