Project Description

This project continues Metra's ongoing locomotive rehabilitation program. It consists of the life-extending rebuild of F40 locomotives and the mid-life overhaul of MP36 locomotives. A locomotive rehabilitation is less expensive than a purchase, saving approximately $5 million per vehicle. The project may include, but is not limited to, the complete rebuild of a diesel engine, overhaul of the Head End power alternator and gear boxes, and painting and body repair.
