Electric Multiple Unit
An electric multiple unit or EMU is a multiple unit train consisting of self-propelled carriages, using electricity as the motive power. An EMU requires no separate locomotive, as electric traction motors are incorporated within one or a number of the carriages. An EMU is usually formed of two or more semi-permanently coupled carriages, but electrically powered single-unit railcars are also generally classed as EMUs. EMUs are popular on commuter and suburban rail networks around the world due to their fast acceleration and pollution-free operation.[1] Being quieter than diesel multiple units (DMU) and locomotive-drawn trains, EMUs can operate later at night and more frequently without disturbing nearby residents

It is a common type of current collector. Typically, a single wire is used, with the return current running through the track. The term stems from the resemblance of some styles to the mechanical pantographs used for copying handwriting and drawings.Contents1 Invention 2 Modern use 3 Technical details 4 Single- and double-arm pantographs 5 Metro systems and overhead lines 6 Inclined pantographs 7 Weaknesses 8 See also 9 ReferencesInvention[edit]Early (1895) flat pantograph on a Baltimore & Ohio Railroad electric locomotive

Wye Railway Station
Wye railway station serves Wye in Kent, England. The station, and all trains serving it, is operated by Southeastern. The platforms were connected by a concrete footbridge - a typical product of the Southern Railway concrete factory at Exmouth Junction. This was replaced with a steel footbridge in 2015. There is a manned level crossing at the south end of the station. The station is manned for part of the day. There is no passenger-operated ticket machine at this location.
