BF5T1592.jpg

Knotberget-Hjälmaresund

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 apparently not highly reliable and was later replaced with a microwave link
