There is nothing more authentic to ex-Pennsy mainlines east of HBG than the old catenary support structures! (And I mean "support" in the more liberal sense.)

Anyway, assuming you're still going to go ahead and clone out the pole, I hope you do a real good job getting rid of the wires, too, because otherwise somebody's going to notice that seven parabolas are ending at arbitrary points in the sky.
