ELECTRIFICATION OF THE PUGET SOUND LINES OF THE CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE AND ST. PAUL RAILWAY

The author gives a brief account of the scope of the work to be undertaken on this, the most important of steam road electrifications. He gives a description of the power supply available, the cost of power to the railway company, the type of substation and rolling stock equipment, and the overhead construction to be adopted. It is of special interest to note that the trolley potential is to be 3000 v, which is the highest direct-current potential yet adopted in this country for railway work.
