IMPACT OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ON RAILROAD ELECTRIFICATION

While no technological break-throughs would seem to make obsolete current electrification technology, certain research and development projects which could be implemented in the next decade could result in significant savings in both capital and operating costs. Among the areas discussed are the utility interface, catenary design, locomotive technology and potential payoff for such investigations.
