    Default Utility Pole Crossarms?

    I'm going to be installing a bunch of Woodland Scenics streetlights on my layout, all of which will also serve as utility poles. Unfortunately, WS doesn't make streetlights with the requisite crossarms for attaching telephone/electrical wires, so I'll need to add those myself.

    Basically, I need crossarms with insulators on top and the little "V" supports on the bottom. Does anybody make anything like that? If worse comes to worse I suppose I could scratchbuild them myself. But I need quite a lot of them, so any shortcuts would be welcome



    Thanks!
    -Mark

    I’ve used the Showcase ones with a lot of success. They trim up easily and are easy to install.
