The improvement of pantographs has been the principal means of achieving alternating current electric rolling stock traffic running at speeds up to 200 km/hr on the Soviet railroads. Characteristics of catenary suspensions utilized on the Moscow-Leningrad line are given, as well as those of the levered catenary mounted on several anchor sections for operational testing. The paper also includes the following: results of tests on two TS-6M pantographs with automatic control of the ChS 200 electric locomotive operating at a maximum speed of 210 km/hr, and the operational experience of running the multiple-unit ER-200 train on the Moscow-Leningrad line. Also listed are the technical requirements for the catenary network on alternating current suitable for running trains at speeds up to 200 km/hr.
