JIS Have you observed the work to see that individual feeders to each track are not in sight  ?   Could it be that individual feeders are in place but are connected together ?  Since have no plans to visit anytime soon will have to use your best observations ? 

The feeders have not changed. They are pretty much exactly the same as before except some additional ones from the added substations to bolster the feed. AFAICT there is an added substation in Hamilton at least

Maybe = maybe not. Was looking for feeders of the 12 kV to the trolley, aux , or messenger.  This picture does not.  However the unconverted variable tension on the right side of picture cannot be determined ?  has anyone observed feeders at same locations as before and are they bussed together.?
