Thanks, Jose.

Now there is the simplest overhead that I have ever seen Steve.

Go for it! 

Actually overhead for pantograph is very simple to erect, once you get the need for catinary out of your head. That is only on high speed lines. Pantographs eliminate the need for diddling with poles (or back-poling) to put a car into a siding. Even some lines that ran cat out on the mains, had only single wire in the yards,  Piedmont and Northern comes to mind.
