Overhead clearance New Rochelle - New Haven?

Post by nh chris » Mon May 26, 2008 7:40 am

A simple question. What is the minimum overhead clearance between New Rochelle and New Haven?

How about between New Rochelle and NYP?

Just asking, is all.

Max equipment height :
Div post to CP261= 16 foot 3 inch
CP261 to CP216 = 15 foot 6 inch
CP216 to CP112 = 15 foot 2 inch

Don't know about CP16 to NYP but max equipment height in NYP is 14 foot 6 inch
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???
