Production and distribution.

Heh. Hi Miche.

This one reminds me of the sort of illustration that used to be in kids' science books from the 1950's about living in the future, minus the flying cars. I'm not sure what the Ministry's stance on flying cars is, but I haven't been asked to model their uptake into the fleet yet.

I remember those.

On a side note, part of your photo here jogs a memory from the days I played in the Society for Creative Anachronism. A couple friends and I took a short road-trip to a nearby city to look for some resources. At an import store franchise place, I spotted several folding fans which came from China. Hand-painted onto the paper of the fan, an idyllic country scene with a farming village, rice paddies, and across the near horizon high-power distribution electric lines. I showed it to one friend, and mentioned that a character seemed absent from the scene.

Later that year, before the actual 12th night yet at our celebration of 12th Night, this same friend gifted me with that folding fan, the idyllic country scene of village and paddies, the distribution lines now abruptly interrupted by Godzilla.

Y halo!

NICE picture of wind farm and 220kV 2-circuit lines, there! Wonder where the transmission substation is...

I'm actually pretty certain that the transmission line is not associated with the windfarm - the line predates the turbines and is considerably closer.
