Never Too Early to Start Thinking About Ice On Your Catenary Wires

Since most commuters I know are well versed in the ways of catenary wires and pantograph shoes, perhaps one of y’all can help this gentleman that we found in the Trainjotting mailbag.

I was wondering what different methods you might know of that rail systems use to remove ice from their catenary wires.  I recently read an article on using voltage and
high frequency to remove ice from high voltage transmission lines and wondered whether this might be possible to use on electric light rail systems.  Please give me your thoughts.  You may want to look at  Thanks!!!
