GREAT NORTHERN SUBURBAN ELECTRIFICATION. PART I: CIVIL ENGINEERING WORKS. PART II: FIXED EQUIPMENT

This two-part (Civil Engineering Works and Fixed Equipment) article discusses the planning and construction involved in the electrification of 115 route km of British Railways suburban line out of London's Kings Cross Station. Installation of catenary involved alterations to existing bridges and tunnels and construction of some completely new bridges. The fixed equipment is the means by which power is transmitted from the supply point to the train and consists of the power supply system and the catenary itself. Designs result from the experience gained during installation and operation of earlier BR electrifications.
