REVENUE SERVICE OPERATION, 1973. AC PROPULSION PROJECT
This report discusses the integration of three AC powered cars into the Cleveland Transit System's revenue operation during 1973. The year of operation was divided into two distinct operating periods. In the first period, January through June, the three AC cars were not compatible with the remaining Airporter fleet. During the second period, July through December, the three AC cars were modified in such a manner as to render them compatible with the DC cars and were operated the remainder of the year in mixed service.
