Hello, I admit it’s been a while since I’ve been here. Train stuff has been inaccessible last year due to moving. It’s come back out, and I’m in a place where I can do something with it once again. Going through my catenary poles, I had forgotten that the set of the arch-style poles comes with two variants, in equal number, as shown below: My question is what is the typical application of each of these styles? Where along the line would each type be more likely to be seen? In addition, I would like to know what the most common transition points would be from one pole style to another, such as from these to the 23-061 or 23-059 (when used for double track with the same spacing). Thanks, Aaron

I need to add catenary supports to a single track viaduct made up with the KATO 20-400 viaducts and the 23-017 piers (as shown below). The packaging of these items does not give me any clue on how to fix the catenary supports to these piers. Does any of you know of a clever way of doing it? Kind regards, Jan Photo's are taken from the Sumida;s Crossing site (my first go-to place for such questions).
Recent editions from the "Eyes of Metro" series, focusing on the work of staff in the various departments.
