bracket_ho1.jpg (109535 bytes)

A pair of catenary masts seen in Horrem (on Cologne-Aachen) on 16 December 2001. They have double brackets, as they are part of a five-field backbone span. This backbone span is also used as electrical seperation, so the brackets have to be insulated against eachother. This might be the reason for the unusual shape of the side clip, which has to keep some distance to the other contact wire. One bracket in the background still carries a pulley that was used to pull the contact wire into place.

cat_keg1.jpg (95290 bytes)

Special catenary configuration above a double-slip switch with outside tongues (also known as "Baseler" type) seen at the western end of Köln Ehrenfeld Gbf on 31 July 2002. The two contact wires are spread to ensure that they cover every possible route the train (and the pantograph) can take.

cat_works_du1.jpg (93300 bytes)

Catenary works near Düren (on Cologne-Aachen) on 23 February 2003. The track was removed and built up new for a better alignment, so the brackets had to be replaced by longer ones. The lower arm (with the side clip) was just detached and will be brought down now. The train visible below spreads ballast onto the new track.

Catenary works near Düren (on Cologne-Aachen) on 23 February 2003. The track was removed and built up new for a better alignment, so the brackets had to be replaced by longer ones. The upper arm is being disassembled. Note that the catenary is not attached at this mast at this time, although the skylift holds it aside.

Catenary works near Düren (on Cologne-Aachen) on 23 February 2003. The track was removed and built up new for a better alignment, so the brackets had to be replaced by longer ones. The upper arm of the new bracket is being attached to the mast at the lower point. In the background is the ballast train.
