McHugh Locomotive & Equipment specializes in assisting small short line railroads and industrial plants that have rail operations with any type of repairs or service for locomotives. We offer preventative maintenance programs along with performing certified FRA 92 day, semi-annual, bi-annular, inspections. If any electrical components or mechanical parts, on a locomotive are defective and beyond on site repair, we can usually ship replacements directly from our inventory.
We inventory AAR switcher truck assemblies, Flex-coil and Blomberg type style EMD truck assemblies. We also inventory GE truck assemblies for 45 ton side rod, 45/50 ton chain drive, 65/80 ton & 100/120 ton truck assemblies. Our extensive traction motor inventory includes the various type units used in these EMD & GE locomotive truck assemblies.
Performing on site locomotive truck assembly, wheel axle set, and traction motor, change outs are a routine job for us. We perform this work in such a manner that most customers are amazed at how efficiently we complete a project like this. Our talented service crew can use either cranes or special railway side-boom equipment to safely handle this type of projects.
Our technicians are well qualified in the change out failed components and parts. This includes replacing main generators, any rotating equipment, air compressors, along with all electrical and mechanical parts. We can replace individual power assemblies for any EMD locomotives with 6, 8, 12, 16, cylinder engines, and industrial locomotives that use smaller diesel engines for power can also be replaced.
Our technicians also have the capabilities to changed out entire locomotive power plants with replacement rebuilt engines, or to upgrade current EMD 645-E engines to meet EPA Tier 0+ emission standards at your location.
