Yay!, Joint pole V1 has CB's on it. Here we call them Dominion Drop-Outs (DDO's) and they use a length of wire as the fusible link, up to 66kV. They don't reset themselves. Someone got that sort of wrong.

Around northeast NJ, there's a lot of distribution power company wiring using diamond shaped insulator/ spacers used. "Hendrix" method I think it's called. Supposidly more resistant to storm damage, but heard that it's higher routine maintenance.
