Railroad electrification is one of our alternatives to a diesel-electric operation. The selection of the voltage has a large economic impact on capital investment, especially affecting the catenary system design and the electric supply system. Modern designs and new components such as synthetic insulators are today available to keep the initial capital cost and future operating cost of an electrified railroad as economical as possible.
