INTERFERENCE OF ELECTRIFICATION WITH SIGNALING AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS

The problems with electromagnetic and electrostatic induction and other complications of railway electrification are discussed. Track circuits must be immune to traction currents and methods of accomplishing this are explained. Per-kilometer costs of converting a double track railroad for electrification are given.
