    A contact roller was used to collect the electricity. Rectifier locomotives, which used AC power transmission and DC motors, were common, though DC commutators had problems both in starting and at low velocities. They revel in complexity. The Lackawanna also had two tri-power locomotives it used on freight transfer runs between the Secaucus freight terminal and the Jersey City Yard; these had batteries, could operate off catenary when on electrified lines, and also had diesel engines that could charge the batteries.

    Union Pacific ran a large fleet of turbine-powered freight locomotives starting in the s. Electricity quickly became the power supply of choice for subways, abetted by the Sprague's invention of multiple-unit train control in In October Jacobi demonstrates once again a further improved motor, which, however, is only slightly superior to the model from Davidson later built a larger locomotive named Galvani, exhibited at the Royal Scottish Society of Arts Exhibition in Using experience he had gained while working for Jean Heilmann on steam-electric locomotive designs, Brown observed that three-phase motors had a higher power-to-weight ratio than DC motors and, because of the absence of a commutatorwere simpler to manufacture and maintain. The railroad and the men who built it—they have changed it all".

Davidson later built a larger locomotive named Galvani, exhibited at the Royal Scottish Society of Arts Exhibition in Floca did something similar when he wrote Moonshot a couple years ago, but Locomotive takes the format to a whole new level. If there is a downside to all this it would History of the Electric Locomotive book to be the fact that for the skittish, these endpapers seem to make the book seem too old for them.Locomotive (Floca, ) is a picture book that describes the history of trains, and how railroads and their usage used to be.
