Nice find! It's definitely worth looking around there to see if you could find more.

For those wondering what the whole insulator looks like, here's a photo link:

The insulator would have been in a hole in the crossarm, with the metal hook coming down. The line wire would rest in the hook.

Thanks. Waiting for ground to thaw completely then out comes the metal detector. This is a defunct rr line. I understand freeze thaw cycles cause them to crack but they did REALLY good on the erie "over the hill" dig so fingers crossed
