CATENARY SYSTEM AND POWER SUPPLY FACILITIES OF THE MUSKINGUM ELECTRIC RAILROAD

The substation and catenary facilities described were developed to provide ideas, examples, and cost samples to show what can be done in electrifying main-line railroad freight service. Catenary for the project is the first 25-kv 60-Hz system installed in the United States. Three types of catenary hangers were used to provide a measure of comparison of different ideas. Installation procedures are described in detail.
