Electrification

 

Infrastructure – Railway electrification supplies electric power to trains. The main systems use overhead lines and third rail. Overhead lines are usually used for mainline operations and third rail by metro systems. There are also ground-level power supply systems for trams. Unlike conventional third-rail systems these are only live when in contact with the tram’s pickup shoe. This page contains all the latest railway electrification news and suppliers from around the world.
