Re: Amtrak orders 75 new Siemens Charger locomotives for LD trains

Not only that, in some cases they used heavily insulated jumpers to connect the 3d rail to the DD1 contact shoe in cases where the siding was close to a grade crossing with its accompanying gap. The conductor who did the hooking up & disconnecting must have had balls of steel (or a couple belts of jungle juice) to do this, especially in the rain.
Things were done very differently back in the days before OSHA.
