Functional Powerline Networks

Railway 2 is a network package which is packed with numerous new features, while maintaining the existing features of original Railway 1 project. It also brings new types of networks such as quads and mainlines. Check Railway 2 Guide in the collection, linked above.

About these networks

Powerline networks based on the 'transmission wire' type of New Haven track/segment located in Northeast Corridor section operated now by Amtrak. They are supposed to be placed next to the sides of New Haven portal catenaries as they are positioned like that IRL, referenced in screenshots. They come with 2 colors, consistent with previously released catenary styles.

I recommend to drag them next to tracks then use Move It to align node height with tracks, then align nodes over catenaries, otherwise it will be difficult to align them if they're already dragged right above tracks.

These are very well done! I've seen the real ones my whole life. The New Haven (New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad) put this catenary system in place around 1908 or 1910. The system ran at 11 KV at 25 Hz. The plan was to expand the system all over including up to Boston on what is today the Shoreline Route of the Northeast Corridor. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and the wires weren't expanded until 1996 when the whole NEC was electrified.

This system is quite unique in many ways and is considered a historic.
