    Default 'Changing a Traction Motor on an AC6000' Interesting video

    I doubt many of us will need to do this anytime soon, but found it an interesting watch.



    Enjoy

    Being a bit of a railfan I've seen that video before but it was still interesting to watch again. They should have titled
    it "Removing a Traction Motor" since all they did was pull out the old motor (which was seized up) and rolled in an idler
    axle to carry the weight of the truck. The engine would then have been moved "dead in tow" to a repair facility for
    installation of a new traction motor...
