Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Electric Railway Engineering

While the mechanical fitness of an electrical system has been proved by such installations as the Baltimore Tunnel, the New York New Haven and Hartford Rail way, the New York Central, the north-eastern, the Lancashire and Yorkshire, and the Central London Railway, the commercial limitations imposed by its relatively greater first cost have yet to be demonstrated. The installations under construction, like those of the New York Central, the New York New Haven and Hartford, and the Pennsylvania Railways,' will go far towards demonstrating the extent to which electric traction may compete with the steam locomotive.

The considerations which have led to the adoption of electric traction on the larger steam railways have generally been peculiar to the local circumstances. For instance, in the cases of the Baltimore Tunnel and the New York Central Railway the first con sideration was to avoid the smoke nuisance in tunnels. With regard to the latter railway, once the necessity for electric traction had been realised, the question of additional improvements was taken into consideration, and such elaborate alterations to sidings, stations, and terminal arrangements were deemed advisable to suit the more rapid electrical working, that the cost as a whole was several times that necessarily incident to the change from steam to electricity.
