AMTRAK'S VIEW OF RAILROAD ELECTRIFICATION

Predicting that there will be an expansion of electrification beyond that which will be part of the Northeast Corridor Improvement Project, the author sees finance as the major barrier. Some of the problems of Corridor operation with the proposed new system are discussed, as well as some of the advantages of locomotive-hauled and multiple-unit trains.
