East Coast Main Line Electrification Research Agreement

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Railway Gazette.

These are the first two paragraphs.

An outline £10m co-investment agreement has been signed by the University of Leeds and the Rail Electrification Alliance which is undertaking the East Coast Main Line power supply upgrade programme.

The agreement provides for two years of research into the best and most efficient way of managing electrical power flow on the route, with the university’s scientists and engineers having access to data collected from lineside static frequency converters.

Sounds good to me. I have analysed countless projects and systems, in the early stages and in many cases, the budget and project time have been reduced or a better method of operation has been developed.

University Buys Land For ‘Game-Changing’ High-Speed Rail Institute In Leeds

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Rail Technology Magazine.

I have read the article and feel it is an important development, as it will be co-located with High Speed Two’s rolling stock depot in Leeds.
