Introduction to Trolleys and Overhead

Here are a few pictures that show what it looks like. This is divided in to a couple sections. The overhead and associated equipment. My Division. And as lagniappe, our local trolley "museum" I realize that this is probably overly technical...and doesn't really show what I mostly do (harassing passengers and terrifying auto drivers), but I don't have many action shots.

Overhead etc.
Our electric buses are powered by 600 volts DC, from a two wire overhead system. Left wire is hot. Nominal clearance is 18 feet.
