THE ELECTRIFICATION THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN--AND MIGHT STILL BE

The Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act has a provision which provides $200 in loan guarantees for Conrail electrification if it can be justified. This has set off a study of the 250-mile route between Enola, Pa., and Pittsburgh, the former Pennsylvania Railroad mainline across the state. PRR had made a series of studies of this same project from the early years of the century. This article describes these studies made in 1908, 1913, 1923, 1930 and 1955. For a variety of reasons none of those plans were ever implemented.
