Here is my collection of Insulators I have amassed over the last few months.

Mostly Hemingray 40's/42's/45's, some Brookfield "B" Beehives, Whitehall Tatum No. 1's, various ceramic ones, etc

Very unlikely I have anything particularly rare, but I do have a handful of green Brookfield CD 152's with some amber swirling. So there's that.

Haha nice collection in such a short time! I got to get on the insulator collecting bandwagon. There's an old railroad near me and in the past I remember seeing some really massive ceramic insulators on the ground from the old pilings that use to run beside the tracks. Tried taking one once but it weighed too much. They're about a foot wide and about two feet high with about five or six ceramic insulator disks stacked on top of eachother. Probably about 75 pounds each. There are a few of them half buried in the dirt about a mile and a half deep in dificult to navigate terrain - hence why they've never been taken yet. They all have brown enamel coatings with black writing saying the name of the railroad and the year they were made - 1932 if I remember correctly.
