From http://www.railwaypeople.com/rail-news-articles/regenerative-braking-on-the-third-rail-dc-network-1590.html A report on regenerative braking on trains using the 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] rail. I just love this paragraph.

In parallel, there were rolling stock developments. The point at which all the issues started to drop away was when the Infrastructure Engineers and Bombardier, helped out by some translating consultants (Booz & Company), started to understand that new trains are really quite clever beasts. These trains do understand what voltage the 3rd rail is at, and are able, without the need to use any complicated switch gear – just using software, to decide when to regenerate into the 3rd rail or alternatively, use the rheostatic resistors that are on the train.

I wonder if Booz and Company have any jobs going? Pitty I'm on the wagon now!
