Signal Pole Line

When Southern Pacific abandoned the right-of-way through Niles Canyon they left the original pole line used for wayside signaling.  Some of the pole line is in reasonable condition while other portions deep in the Canyon are slowly succumbing to Mother Nature.  The Pole Line Division of the Signal Department is currently in the process of restoring a two miles section between Brightside and Sunol.

Here’s a pole that may be supporting the wires or are the wires supporting the pole?
