<t>I got my copy yesterday in the little town of Topeka, Indiana (04/26).  I haven't really had a chance to read it yet but it looks really interesting especially since my biggest interest in the New Haven is in the electrification.  That's my biggest but by no means only interest.<br/> <br/> Regard...

<t> Dana,<br/> <br/> I do recall that the triangular catenary, much as I hated to see it go, did in fact cause operational headaches over the years but I was not aware of any real issues with the "floating beam" sections.<br/> <br/> Also, what was the deal the forth track that was removed?  Have the...

More Recent Ride on the Electric Zone

<r>Group,<br/> <br/> Here is a lovely video of someone else's ride on the electric zone that was shot at a more recent date.  I posted this once before in another thread but am reposting here because I have some questions on this that I'm hoping someone can answer.<br/> <br/> First of all, you'll no...
