    Walthers has a set of poles, and also Life-Like produces a set.

    Look here in the Walthers catalog. At the moment they even have a special sale price.

    I've been experimenting with scratch building scenery. I'm trying bamboo skewers (sp?) and I believe they are the right diameter.

    The Walthers ones are the most realistic ones to me. They have serveral different combinations of low and high voltage and many transformers. It is in kit form so you have to assemble them but they are not that difficult. They even provide instructions and detailed descriptions of the different voltages and were and how they are done.:thumb: :thumb:

    I used a pile of atlas ones on my old layout. I plan to scatch my new ones, along with quite a few High Tension ones.
