Toward the spark

Electrification has commenced - I have been able to assemble a semblance of the characteristic VR catenary masts from a variety of sources including Sommerfeldt masts, ex-rail girders and various other pieces. Also included is the High Tension (HT) extensions added from 1925 to provide back up main power carriage, themselves characteristic of the eastern line through Auburn and Glenferrie. Thanks are due to Ian Weickhardt for helpful advice generously given.
