    This shows a span I had to put in as the tracks where to close to allow poles to stand there.
    I have insulated it to allow seperate operation , as all the other poles are independent.

    Hi Rick have a click on the link above.
    Traction refers in this instance to electric operated railways, I model the 1940s when interurbans travelled on there own right of way and entered the cities on the street tracks.

    Check my links below.

    It`s a whole new way to model railways.

    OK, thanks Chris, I've always thought that looked really cool from the Photos I've seen, just didn't know what it was called.
