Thanks Brian, I will proceed along those lines. I would still be interested
to hear from experts in the utility field as to what the original purpose
of the lines were.  Since this is in the US, one case assume standard
household voltage (given the size of the insulators and the fact that it
terminiantes at an old house in ruins), which back in the day was 110.  In
which case, there would be a considerably percentage voltage drop over the
many km distnace this line spans.
