Publisher: Four Ways West Publications
Publication Date: 2002
Book Condition: New
In this book we will take a look at the New Haven's Electric Locomotive and multiple unit cars. New Haven was the pioneer of main line AC electrification in the United States. Due to the New York State Act of 1903, steam locomotives would be banned in Grand Central Terminal and the Park Avenue Tunnel by July 1, 1908. New Haven's experience with DC was that it was only good for light traction. So, in order to operate over its own lines and into Grand Central, the New Haven would have to operate on both a 650 volt DC third rail and 11,000 volt AC overhead wire, a formidable challenge for 1905-1907. This four track mainline electrification would be expanded to New Haven, Conn. by 1914, Cedar Hill Yard by 1915 and over the Hell Gate Bridge route by 1917. The route covered includes from New York on to New Haven and Springfield, Connecticut with photographs of the electrics and diesels and includes an electric locomotive roster.
