Thanks, nice additional resource on those days of the PRSL, there aren't too many resources about it, and the facts about the electrification are often vague, especially for the younger generations. I've only ever seen a handful of photos about this.

For some reason it seems to me that the section with the trolley wire was a result of local opposition to a third rail. It's been so long that I don't know why I think that. Perhaps somebody else can enlighten.
