S&C CAN LIVE WITH 50KV, 60 HZ AC

Signal and communications facilities can be converted for satisfactory operation in electrified territory on railroads. There is no simple formula for determining conversion costs. Studies have indicated a variety of costs ranging from a low of $9,000 per track mile to a high of $30,000 per track mile. The type of signal and communications facilities in the existing railroad plant determine to a large extent the cost of making them compatible with electrified operations. Techniques for conversion are now known and proved feasible.
