Hello all,

Would anyone out there have a copy of or access to an electrical system schematic or wiring diagram for Conrail's N21 cabs?

Thanks
Bill

So what would the battery voltage be? 1.5v

I do not know what type of locomotive you are asking about? Is there such a locomotive as a N21 and if so can you post a photo. Most locomotive electrical systems are 72 volts. I have many manuals from both GE and EMD. Also a cab electrical schematic is pretty complex if we are talking the electrical cabinets. Is there a specific problem you are having?

Looks like NiFe battery cells. Each cell is 1.2 volt.

They are. I just wasn't sure if 1.2 or 1.5.

Thanks!
