3rd Rail is roughly the same as a regular rail. Except it carries high amounts of electricity through. :)

And is nowhere as good as OHLE ;).

I wouldn't think its that bad in terms of power, surely a class 373 is abit of a power guzzler? and in terms of safety - well you can't fly your kite into a 3rd rail can you now! :P

Why would you be playing iwth a kite near an overhead line?!

But with OHLE you're not exactly going to be walking right next to it, are you?

you never know! - people do silly things :P what makes you think you wouldn't be walking near OHLE? Ok as for a trackworker I understand what you're saying but thats no reason to say 3rd rail isn't as safe as OHLE....

You could always have a balloon on a platform.
Small children might not understand about the dangers of the overheads.

Why are the juice rails dark red :?
Don't you remember the original Southern route by Steve Green? ;)
