Last week when i was taking (NJT):nec: to newark, i noticed a bunch of the catenary towers having excavation around the base. Anyone know why this is happening? I'll try to get photos this coming tuesday.

Yea, the ones with the concrete mostly intact were untouched, but the ones with re-bar showing had the trenches.

 

I'll see if i can get photos this tuesday.

 

I wonder how long till we see the power supply system overhauled to allow higher train speeds. With the NJ portion of the NEC for the most part having new concrete ties you'd expect the catenary to be next. I want all trains to be able to run at max speed!
