"H-O" Scale CATENARY

 

NEW HAVEN RR CATENARY..... See Picture

In 1906 the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad began an ambitious project to electrify a 33 mile section of 4 track main line between Woodlawn (Bronx N.Y.) and Stamford CT. By 1914 not only was the Stamford section complete, but the entire line to New Haven CT. had been electrified. Model Memories is proud to announce the reproduction of this feat of engineering in etched brass........

Our catenary system offers everything you need to build a New Haven style overhead wire system including catenary bridges, pre-formed overhead wire, insulators, and instructions. Designed to accurately reproduce the prototype, our system is not designed to actually distribute power to the train, although the ambitious modeler can power the wire.

To install 20" of catenary on your layout, you should order: 1 catenary bridge (2 are needed for the first section), 1 overhead wire hanger kit, 1 pk pre-formed wire.

 

NEW HAVEN RR - CATENARY BRIDGE AND WIRE

Catenary bridges are available in kit form or fully assembled. Kits include parts for two legs (choose straight or tapered), bridge span (front, back, top, bottom), corner braces, insulators, brackets, and instructions.
Assembly requires soldering ability.

New Haven RR Anchor Bridge - Click for Photo

These bridges served several functions; as a support for the overhead wire, and to sectionalize overhead wire (between Anchor Bridges) removing power for maintenance. These Bridges were placed approximately every two miles and after researching many photos we’ve come to understand that no two were identical. Model Memories has reproduced one style of these beautiful Bridges.
