Potelco, Inc. and Puget Sound Energy have graciously donated several miles of steel core aluminum feeder wire to the trolleys for rebuilding the power distribution system on the Selah Line.  The new feeder line will incorporate and alarm circuit that will immediately signal an interruption in power at the Yakima Police Department.  Relays in the circuit will let the police know the exact location of the cut so that they can apprehend the thieves.  The aluminum wire around a steel core is of little scrap value compared to the copper wire it replaces.
