    That's great Chris. For a while there I didn't think you had any diesels, just overheads. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    i some where have seen a photo of a diesel on the Pacific Electric ( i think its the one :confused: ) running with a trolley pole not to power diesel but for signal detection . as a model you could power it off trolley wire :)

    I've seen a couple of shots of S-1's and S-2's with a Pantograph.

    Often it's simply required to activate signalling, although they may be able to power the traction motors as well, if it's a 600V wire.
