In Montana and Eastern Idaho the Milwaukee Railroad used creosote treated poles for catenary support on the electrified regions. When they crossed a long bridge, like Blacktail Trestle 588’ long, outside of Butte, Montana. These structures were riveted to the side of the bridge plates to support the trolley poles. See Trolley Pole Group for the poles.
Please note: Because of the scale these are fragile. I tried to leave enough clearance so the poles would fit the stirrup, however it is your responsibility to be sure not to force the pole into the stirrup. I have added a sprue to connect the supports into one model, lightly sand the sprue away after cutting the extra material away from round pole. Also, be sure to wash the parts with a mild mixture of dish soap before attempting to paint. I hope you enjoy the model.
