   So, no one bothered to clip their nails, and they clawed their way

   Not that bad, if the installation is documented.  I've seen worse in
TV stations.

FWIW, AVG reports a JavaScript exploit threat when loading that page.

Had the same thought Michael. I may have serious withdrawal symptoms, if it
keeps up for too long!

   I can't say that I'll ever miss calls from the con artists from
'Credit Card Services'.  I've been on the 'Do Not Call' list since it
first came out, but a lot of greedy bastards ignore the laws.  Some have
called so may times that I curse them out for waking me up.  One that
really pissed me off called themselves 'Air Force One' heating and air
conditioning.

We can only hope that it lasts indefinitely.
Has been great without those stupid scammers calling 5 times every day.

Notice the barbed wire at the bottom of the installation. For the protection of
the public no doubt. :-)

Seems they have it all covered.

I guess with the number of people they have in that country, losing a
few is not a real problem.

When I was over there 20 or so years ago there was a train out of Delhi
that ran over a dozen people. The train driver was rewarded for
continuing the journey so as not to cause inconvenience or delays to the
passengers.

Also notice that the four transfomers are still attached to the dolly
and steel wheels.  Probably a "temporary" installation.

The ladder and platform near the left leg has my puzzled.  It has no
obvious purpose.  Maybe a charging stand for cell phones?

Those four units appear to be radiators for the oil cooling system.
Otherwise, it looks like an ordinary three phase transformer, which
has been installed exceptionally low. The four 3 phase low voltage
cables from the transformer are intended for a much higher transformer
mounting, since cables are zig-zagging across the system, before
entering the fuses from below.  

At least there is some sense in the installation since the customer
wires are installed after the fuses.

However, I do not see how the secondary neutral is connected, assuming
240/415 V (British legacy) distribution system, or perhaps this is 240
V delta only distribution (no neutral)

Agreed.  It's one transformer.  I assumed that 12 cables, coming out
of 4 cans, would make 4 transformers.  However, following the cables
from the line of fuses, some of them go up the I-beams to probably
some additional transformers at the top of the I-beams, and out of the
picture.

Yep.  I tried to work it out from the color code (red-yel-blu) which I
think (not sure) defines a delta secondary.  Wye would require a 4th
neutral wire.
