Motive Power Resources announced that it has completed its first locomotive overhaul at its new heavy overhaul and repair facility in Minooka, Ill.

The rebuilt EMD SD38, upgraded with a ZTR Nexus system, rebuilt mechanicals and other upgrades, was shipped to customer Ardent Mills in Easton, Pa.

The rebuilder’s overhaul center comprises 30,000 square-feet of heavy locomotive overhaul and repair space; 5,000 square-feet of remodeled office and administrative space, all-new track construction, and a new 12,000 square-foot warehouse for parts and components.

“With our new facility, we are fully able to accommodate complete locomotive rebuild projects, wreck repairs and specialty locomotive projects to customer specifications,” said Steve Bomba, President of MPR. “ We feel this is a natural extension of our growing list of product offerings.”
