Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wtdimday. October 24, Abandoned VANCOUVER CP horses die in north More than 600 horses, many of them owned by Americans were abandoned to die in northern British Columbia and the Yukon, says a brief by the Canadian Wild Horse Society. The brief estimates that 670 1973 horses were abandoned last year in northern B.C., with an undetermined number left to starve during the winter in the Yukon, northern Vancouver Island, the Queen Charlotte Islands and the north coast areas of B.C. Them. Us. Electric trains next They're rated highly by TV servicemen. So are we. They feature all-solid-state circuitry for reliability. Just like us, They boast plug-in modules for easy servicing. CALGARY (CP) Cana- dian Pacific Railway, study- ing the feasibility of electrification for the fifth time in its history, says it is only a matter of time before electric locomotives replace diesel-electric units. CP Rail first considered electrifying its locomotives in 1895. Other feasibility studies followed in and 1924 but for one reason or another the railway never got wired to the idea. Changing conditions and technological breakthroughs now have made electrification more attractive. Laurie Tufts, CP Rail's supervisor of research engineering, says electric locomotives are far more powerful than diesel-electric to horsepower compared with for diesel-electric. Tests show electric locomotives could achieve traction levels 50 per cent higher than the locomotives now used by CP Rail. Electric locomotives could be in service for 30 years, almost double the normal life of diesel-electric locomotives, and require less maintenance. Mr. Tufts said Canada is de- veloping the traffic density re- quired to make electrification cost-efficient. Electrification needs heavy estimated 9150 million to elec- trify the Calgary-Vancouver run, which may be one of the first sections to be electrifed should CP Rail decide to go ahead. "As diesel locomotive oper- ators, we are the prisoners of a single says Keith Campbell, Canadian Pacific's corporate vice-president in charge of rail operations. "It is a fuel that is fast be- coming a pawn on the chessboard of international politics." With electrification oil would still be required, but coal, natural gas, hydro power and nuclear energy could also be used, giving the railway flexibility in time of need. The economic and traffic aspects of the current elec-, trification study were com- pleted in 1971. CP Rail says electrification "could be fea- sible" for 640 miles of main line between Calgary and Van- couver, and 220 miles between Golden, B.C., and Sparwood in the Crowsnest "This is the area which can benefit most from elec- trification because it is ex- periencing the fastest traffic growth rate and because of the special tractive advan- tages of electrically-powered locomotives in mountainous regions." SNOWY SITE FOR TESTS The site selected for a pilot project of the study is Ross Peak near Revelstoke, B.C., an area where the annual snowfall frequently exceeds 500 inches and snowslides are common. A one-quarter-mile-long section of overhead electrical wir- ing structure that would tran- smit power from plants to electric has been constructed at Ross Peai. The test section is equipped with functional hard- ware, but is not being ener- gized. "We fully expect to have difficulty with the equipment because of the says Robert Klein, CP Rail's direc- tor of technical research and development. Overhead wires Canadian Pacific Railway engineers say it is only a matter of time before electric locomotives using overhead wires replace diesel-electric units. The more powerful locomotives would be an advantage in mountain areas. THE BEEFS about beef in Argentina don't look likely here as Mario, a cook in a small restaurant in Buenos Aires, slices off steaks. But that holds true only for the first half of the month. During the last half there is-a ban on selling beef locally in an effort to boost export sales. We've got 'em too Electrohome engineers and builds color TV right here in Canada.
