Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thank you.

Doesn't the current to run the trains heat the wires?

When trains aren't running enough to keep the wires warm, wouldn't it be cheaper to warm them than to repair them?

I see that the trains are dead with no overhead wirefeed.

Shouldn't there be a small generator onboard for emergencies, to at least keep the toilets running? Perhaps a tank of natgas for heat?

I presume catenaries refers to the shape the feed wires take between supports.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
