How does Electrical Fire happen? A high current fault can create an electrical fire by forming a high energy arc flash which rapidly vaporizes metal and insulation material. An electrical explosion is the sudden release of energy due to a short circuit between power phases or a phase to ground. It is important to realize that a very large amount of energy is available on the bus of most electrical panels when they are operating within their normal design parameters. For example a phase to phase short circuit on a 400 Amp, 120/208 Volt panel can instantaneously release over 100 kilowatts of energy during a fault condition and not blow the protective fuse or circuit breaker. An electrical explosion of this magnitude will destroy the panel and can start a fire causing severe injuries Follow...
With the track installed it's now time to start the wiring process and get trains running and points working.
This is my method to doing a t-splice (splicing a new wire into an existing wire) without solder. All you need are the wires you want to splice and some quality electrical tape or even better, some heat shrink tubing. Yes, it is better to solder but this method It works great and is strong if you don't have solder. I claim to be no expert electrician, your mileage may vary as well as opinions. Hope this helps someone. You can get a nice hook set here for cheap: http://amzn.to/2DrWqXA Here's the wire stripper that I use: http://amzn.to/2DqINb4

A quick demonstration on how to join up the electrical wire when cutting it and adding an extension. The method is called a "Western Union Splice" where you join two ends of the wire are twist it counter-clockwise, I then add some solder to secure the wire. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Budget Water Cooling Loop - Full Custom for Under $80" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpbTyfYlres -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Union Pacific Turbines of the Wasatch UP 8500s, the world's most powerful gas turbines, were all but gone by 1969, but their memory lives on in railroading lore and in this wonderful video. You'll see the very thunder of these massive steel Goliaths as they pull heavy tonnage out of the Salt Lake Basin. There's never-ending action in this exhilarating documentary of turbine power on the Union Pacific Railroad!
El 11 de diciembre de 2016, Francis Rossi, Andrew Bown, John 'Rhino' Edwards y Leon Cave conectaron sus instrumentos y trajeron su espectáculo eléctrico y atronador de vuelta a las salas de concierto del mundo para lo que consideraron sería la última vez. Lleno de éxitos, tanto nuevos como viejos, Status Quo sonaban tan jóvenes y frescos como siempre. La nueva versión en vivo "The Last Night Of The Electric" captura el momento mágico tanto en audio como en vídeo. Pero nunca se sabe dónde la vida te llevará ... siguiendo la increíble reacción y el éxito de su reciente gira europea y como resultado de las solicitudes de los aficionados y promotores por igual, Status Quo decidió extender la gira en 2017, visitando inicialmente territorios no incluidos en la gira actual.

The trouble-free EF-3s were the New Haven’s most powerful electrics, and they deserved a better fate than they got. Built in 1942 and 1943 by both Baldwin-Westinghouse and General Electric, the ten EF-3s were replacements for the road’s aging fleet of freight motors, the newest of which had been built in 1926. Externally, the EF-3s were near-identical twins of the EP-4 passenger motors delivered by General Electric in 1938. But New Haven passenger electrics were limited in weight by their need to enter Manhattan’s Grand Central Station over the weight-restricted Park Avenue Viaduct. Free of that restriction, the EF-3 freight motors were heavier and more powerful than their passenger sisters. Continuous horsepower rating for an EF-3 was 4,860 at its top speed of 65 mph, and short-term maxi...
A historic early electric car, see a restored Baker Electric Car drives on rural roads at 25 mph, see the features of this restored vehicle in HD. It uses a tiller steering, and has 5 forward speeds. It was owned by the 2nd president of GE: E.W. Rice Jr. and was kept at his home in Schenectady, now the grounds of Union College. The motor was made in Schenectady and is dated 1903, although deeds from purchase show 1901. The motor may have been put in during the restoration to replace the original 1901 motor. It used a mercury arc rectifier for a battery charger and runs on 24 volts.
D-118 1hr. 07min. The "Road" from 1955 to 1978 covering the electric, diesels and some steam. This is a nostalgic and technical look at electric, mountain railroading. See GE box-cabs, Joes, and Bi-polars in many great locations. Go inside substations and yards. Watch how the sturdy mountain-men of the "Road" dealt with poor funding and ancient, fading equipment to keep the trains running -- a "Yoeman's effort" to say the least. See and hear the start-up of the motor-generators at the Avery sub-station. The experience and the sounds and sights have been described as "raising the hairs on the back of your neck". Passenger and freight operations are covered. We review the rival GN, NP lines and "almost" merger partner, the Rock Island. Don't miss t...
How to be electrically self sufficient on a narrowboat

25 June 2012 Wellington's English Electric trains are going gracefully to retirement this afternoon. The final English Electric passenger service will be marked by a short ceremony at Wellington Railway Station at 2pm before the public and invited guests board the train for the last return ride after 74 years of service. Greater Wellington regional council chair Fran Wilde said the last passenger service - the 2.39pm from Melling to Wellington - was a significant event in the region's rail history. ''It's a time for us to celebrate both the sterling service that these 60-year-old trains have given to the region and the progress we have made with the modern, 21st century Matangi trains. There are now sufficient numbers of the new trains in service to enable us to let go of the old ones.'' ...
