Tumbler Ridge Branch Line Electrification Demonstration

Tumbler Ridge Branch Line Electrification Demonstration

Microform - 1986
Rate this:
BC Rail's Tumbler Ridge Branch Line was built between 1981 and 1983 to provide rail access to the northeast coal fields in British Columbia. Because of long grades and heavy tonnage, it was decided to electrify the branch line rather than provide complex ventilation systems in the two long tunnels. This report documents the reasons for electrification, the design, construction and commissioning of the power supply and catenary systems, the testing of the electric locomotives, power management, and operating and maintenance costs.
