COULD ELECTRIFICATION IN U.S. FOLLOW THE EUROPEAN PATTERN?

In conjunction with the Burlington Northern's study of possible electrification of its routes where coal traffic is expected to grow substantially in coming years, Sweden's ASEA made a proposal for electric operation of the line from Sheridan, Wyo., to Lincoln, Neb., using the technology of Europe. The article points out some of the differing ideas between U.S. and Europe on the motive power for such an operation and gives the ASEA recommendations for maximizing line capacity and minimizing investment.
