Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Power supply from large plants and high-voltage lines in the public grid are three-phase, and substations for the supply of the 25 kV/50 Hz grid can connect to either of the phases, and are actually connected to different phases on purpose so that there is a balanced load. In contrast, the 16.7 Hz railway supply system is single-phase.
