Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wrote an article on this several years ago, "Wind Powered Electric Railroad Potential in the United States",  presented at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Wind Energy Symposium,  New Orleans, LA,  Jan. 1994.

If you are the same Don Smith who did all the performance reporting for the Altamont Pass windparks, and was virtually the lone voice of sanity at PG&E, providing ponytail backup along the way, the welcome to ET.

If you're not, still welcome to ET.  And how about a summary of your report?
