The God YV47R will love these in his layout, that D30 reminds me of that Scot Hydro Milliken PL1 set that used to wind its way down Greendykes Lane in Dundee, also documented in here by a rather inexperienced LesC ;D
(well O/T but for the railway enthusuasts) The rather bizarre Royal Scots Grey Deltic alumina workings to Alcan at Lynemouth catch that NEDL L3C DS set frequently! Google is your friend here
Wow those are nice very nice. How did you do the insulators? That was the one thing I struggled with when I was reworking my Hornby models to modify them and make them more like some of the PL1 towers I had seen and photographed near to New Mills. Mind you this was well before I joined PAS and got myself a copy of the Tower Bible.
Mind you now I could make up a string of insulators in CAD and get some 3D ones printed I guess....
There are some other fascinating pylons in that Flickr set - like these L3DS on 132 with the wierd extended insulators and the third PL4DDT I've seen this month! Plenty of folks will like these on here...

Nice new feature in PLS CADD - the OHL modeling tool. it now supports export of STL files - STereoLithography ".stl" file that can be used with 3D printers! fantastic tower modeling prospects :-) (okay so it's a few thousand for a good printer, and ten thousand or so for the software)
