REVIEW OF MAIN LINE ELECTRIFICATION: INTERIM REPORT

This is the broad financial appraisal of British Rail's operations and profitability over the next 25 years as well as the implications of continuing electrification. Five options of increased coverage of the catenary are considered, bringing in the main factors bearing on costs. The BR/Department of Transport Steering Group has concluded that the results of this financial study are favorable and a more detailed analysis is under way. A mathematical model is used to compare costs of each option, varying the mixes of diesel and electric traction possible and necessary with each.
