Post subject:  In the Right-of-Way

Here's a small junction box I made from some wood scraps, cardboard from a cereal box, a couple of nails, two repro insulators from George Tebolt, and a bit of paint and glue:

Will use this as the end-point for the lines running along my power poles.

One thing to note...the "decal" is just a High-Voltage warning sign I found while googling, shrunk it down using MS Paint, cut it out and glued it on. I gave the whole thing an overspray of clear semi-gloss.

Somewhere around here I have a plan for a small phone-box that many of the railways would have along the right-of-way. I need to find that and make one of those as well. I seem to remember it used a wire that dropped down from a nearby telegraph pole. It should be an easy little project.
