ELECTRIFICATION--THE NEW TECHNOLOGY. PART II

Power systems, types of catenary and solid state devices for power and control circuits of locomotives have changed some of the traditional objections to electrification. In electrification planning, there must be economic trade-offs. While current electrification technology has progressed beyond what was available when the last major U.S. system was installed, both U.S. and Canadian railroads are hesitating to make the commitment. This is Part II of a two-part special report.
