On this picture, the function of the V-shaped guides can be understood. On the right side the slacked wire has been guided into the supporting wheel. As a bucket approaches the pylon the drive wire raises as seen on the left side.

The insulators in the top of the pylon held wires for the command- and control system. It was a constant source of problems and was later replaced with a microwave link
