Project Description

This project funds the overhaul of traction motors and traction alternators for locomotives. This project also involves the overhaul of auxiliary generators and head-end-power (HEP) alternators. The overhauled equipment will be used on locomotives operated on railroads either owned or operated by Metra. A basic overhaul is required to return these motors to an acceptable level of performance.
