I have recently noticed that near where I live there is a stretch of utility poles that have glass insulators on them. I would like to try and get them but there are lines still on some of the poles. They run along the train tracks and people are convinced they are old telegraph lines and are out of commission. The lines are on some, missing on others, and in some cases detached and sitting on the ground. Would the hydro company leave lines like that if they were live? Anyways I just want to know if it’s safe or not, I would never climb the poles, but have considered making a picker pole. Just want to go about this safely.
