Rare electrical porn

One for my electrical engineering mates.

I spotted this freshly dropped, clean, shiney, transformer for a small substation on a nearby new build.

It was quite busy at the time, and there were too many bodies staggering around to get a clear pic, so I couldn’t show the location, or maybe even prove it really is there. 47 more words
