THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, THUESDAT, JANUARY 10, 1889.
LIGHT ENOUGH NOW.
Ihe Great Hoosac Tunnel, Formerly
in Egyptian Darkness,
ILLUMINATED BY ELECTRICITY.
An Achievement of the TVcsUnglion.se Com
pany Astonishes the World.
FIVE MILES OF ELECTRIC LAiirS
The "Westinghou'-e Electric Company has
jut finished the contract of lighting the
Hoosac tunnel with incandescent lamps,
which is regarded as one of the most diffi
cult electric achievements the world has
The tunnel is five miles long, and is cut
throngha mountain ridge, which is filled with
numerous springs. "When the railroad com
pany decided to cut the tunnel they built two
canals, one on each side of the tracks in
order to force the water into these channels,
so it would run out of the tunnel. They
frequently attempted to illuminate
the tunnel with oil. gasoline and
gas, but the dampness
air invariably caused
in go out, and the tunnel was more or les in
Egyptian darkness all the jcar around. The
contract was then offered to several electric
light companies but none of them desired to
accept it, because it was thought an imposi
bilitj by all electricians to put electric light"
into the tunnel. It wa argued that the danip
atmosphere pervading the tunnel and the water
from the vail, and rouf would so break the
electric ennent that not a light would be of
auj ue. But Air Westinghouse was convinced
tbat with a plant constructed according to his
methods the Uk of illuminating the tnnnel
could be achieved successful!. Contracts
w ere at once drawn up and the preliminary ar
rangements for the work were inaugurated.
scorrnns have a laugh.
The entire electric world laughed at the idea
and pooh-poohed it as a quixotic notion. This
tkepticism grew as the work advanced, and
prophesies of a dismal failure were heard in
every quarter The successful comnletion of
this grand electric feat is therefore a remark
able triumph of skill and perseverance.
The work of constructing the line was per
formed by the Marr Construction Compam of
1'ittsliurg. an associated interest of Mr. Wet
inghouse Tuewo'kwas personallv superin
tended bv Messrs. Thomas Spencer, J A. Gner,
J.d Davis. EJ R-Grleranel Jobnfetalev Mr.
Spencer wa recently sent to London, England,
to construct a plant of the Westinghouse
Electric Companj trerc.
The dimcultv or working in the darkness of
the tunnel, where torches shed a meagre and
uncertain light r distance of a few feet onlv,
can in a measure be imagined. With sinoko
and constant dripping of water from the roof
and siile. the laj ing of lOmiles of lead-covered
cables in a wooden conduit in a ditch on cither
side of the track was an undertaking requir
ing extreme care and watclilulncsi One man
v as employed .ill da long to carry oil to the
men at work, and there were two barrels of
that fluid used every day while the construc
tion of the line was going on. To that trouble
was also added tho incessant pxssing trains.
01 suipnurous gases irom cngmes. corroding
nil the metal parts from the excessive mois
ture, and rendering imperative absolutely per
fect insulation over t-,000 feet of distance.
This gigantic undertaking was commenced 12
months ago last November and completed two
weeks ago. On the 1st of January the machin
ery as started on a 30 daj s' trial, one of tho
conditions of the contract, and if the trial is
successful tho plant wdl be given over to the
"WHAT THE TLAXT IS.
The machinery consists of two 123-horse
power boilers, a 123-horse power engine, three
No. 1 Westinghouse alternating current dyna
mos, each with a capacity of 630 IC-candle
power lights, and two direct current machines
for exciting larger dynamos. This provides for
an extra machine in case of accident to either
of the others.
The lamos are arranged in sections of 20 50
volt lamps in a series, or 1,000 volts to a section.
In case of break any section may bo cut out
without interfering with the rest of tho svstem.
Each lamp is provided with a chokc-olf coil
case, and if one burns out the other lamps in
the section are not affected. The lamps are
placed 10 feet apart on both sides of thetunnel,
alternating and making one lamp to every 20
leet. Blue lights mark the manholes or places
of -safety cut in the sides of the tunnel.
The Fitthburg Railroad Company had several
objects in view w ben going to the immense ex
pense of lighting the tunneL There was, first,
the additional safety to the traveling public
and workmen. Then there will also be great
saving of time, formerly trains had to pass
through the tunnel one at a time and at a very
slow speed. It has been calculated that in the
wavof speed the trains will save at least SO
minutes in their passage through the tunnel.
The trial has now ueen going on fornino
daj s. and from a letter, which was received at
the Marr Construction Company yesterdaj, a
DiiPATcn reporter was informed that not a
single blow-out has occurred since the first
daj of the trlaL This alone is an unmistakablo
cwdence of the lact that the plant is a success.
