Question by Knights Templar: does electricity pass through the tracks on a electric train?
what creates the circuit with overhead wiring on electric trains and if it passes through the tracks why whats stops electrocution of people walking on tracks
Answer by Bob B
The high voltage to drive the train is carried on the conductors hung above the trackway. Since the tracks only provide a path to carry the current to ground, they aren’t at an elevated voltage level.
