I found this reference to Telegraph poles in a FS&K Discussion a ways back (2010).  I can't bring up the photo mentioned:  Glenn

It is also interesting to note the tellegraph poles in some of these pictures that look like they follow the FS&K ROW.  The SR&RL had them on thier line but the WW&F did not.  If this had ever been built to a connestion in Waterville, I would bet that the WW&F would have gotten tellegraph too.  Another interesting "what if" - Perhaps John McNamara should ask for some "stimulus money" for this project.   Grin

Eric,

Thanks for the thought, but I'm getting too old (and/or lazy) to climb poles.

Great photos.  At first glance, the bracing (or whatever) on the left of the smaller photo looked like a modern-day international cross-buck!
